I wouldn't mind if Evo took account of the data type *when pasting in
the attachment area*. In the normal text area, I maintain that it should
paste the URL, especially when the composer is in plain-text mode (which
in my case is 100% of the time). This strikes me as the natural thing to
do and one which is very easy to explain to the user. If not, the "Paste
Quotation" thing should at least change its name to something
meaningful, such as "Paste URL" (or does it have some other purpose?)

Ah. But the thing is, if you go to a file browser (like nautilus),
select a file, and press Ctrl-C, then go to a compose window and press
Ctrl-V, what behavior would you expect?
I would expect the file to be attached. I would not expect a path to
the file to be pasted.

The bug in chromium is, that it identifies a copied URL as if it was a
file copied from a file manager.
