Thanks for the bug report!  I've opened this on CodePlex as bug 778 - http://www.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?ProjectName=IronPython&WorkItemId=778 - I've tentatively opened it against 1.0 RC, but I've left the priority low as I'm not sure what the possible underlying issue is here, or how risky the change may be.

As for the copy & paste functionality this all comes from the Windows console, and it's off by default, and is enabled on a per-app basis.  If you right click the menu bar, select Properties, go to Options, and Check Quick Edit you'll get this for your IP Consoles as well (and then choose save when you're done).  You may also want to set the layout to be a more sane set of options while you're there as well J.

Subject: [IronPython] site.py discrepancy

if I put a site.py file with the following contents

# begin site.py
print "Hello World"
# end site.py

next to IronPythonConsole.exe

and start ironpython I get the following output:
Hello World
IronPython 1.0.60619 (Beta) on .NET 2.0.50727.42
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

so site is automatically imported

but when I do a dir()

then I see

['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__name__', 'site']

while in CPytion the 'site' is not in dir()


BTW. it seems I cannot copy from the IronPythonConsole window (at least not like from a normal "cmd" window, i.e. right-click -> Mark -> select, rightclick), I don't get a rightclick menu?
