When I copy a text string, I fully expect it to remain a string. Formatted,
colored, but still string.

Plain text is pasted as text, that's not an issue.
But pasting into a text processor is broken.
When I copy a text from PuTTY, it is pasted as colored/formatted, but text.
When I copy same text from MinTTY, it is pasted as uncolored/unformatted table
with a single cell.
