Excellent. It's good to get confirmation (Knowing it works here is just
the first step :]).
FWIW I've tested with 2Mb+ files, with the same result. After 4Mb
performance will degrade (according to MS Documentation it's due to the
old-style Global* heap management routines on Win32.... but the
clipboard requires the use of those routines :-/ )
