Load large spreadsheet, click "select all", watch your eager clipboard
manager suck down lots and lots of data, probably in duplicates
converted to all possible data types the spreadsheet can convert to. And
this may happen even for in-process cut&paste, greatly slowing it down
and causing it to serialize all data.
