When you retrieve bitmaps previously saved on the Clipboard, you may receive the following error message:
Stop 0x0000007F(00000008 00000000 00000000 00000000)


This behavior may occur because certain types of bitmaps saved on the Clipboard can cause a recursive code path to run. This behavior only occurs when the client runs with a color depth at or below 256 colors.
