JSI Tip 3045. Windows 2000 STOP 0x0000007F, while pasting from the clipboard?

When you try to paste a bitmap from the clipboard, you receive:

Stop 0x0000007F(00000008 00000000 00000000 00000000)

Some bitmaps on the clipboard can cause a recursive code path to run, causing the BSOD.

Your computer is only susceptible if you are running a color depth of 256 or less.

To resolve the problem, increase your color depth.
