Xend's console code is known to have issues with high data rates out of the 
domain - I imagine it might also drop stuff if you try and input at a high 
rate (as in X11 pasting).  (that's an educated guess, btw ;-)

The plan is to split out the console stuff as a separate driver before 3.0.  
Hopefully when that gets done, some issues like this could be addressed too.

Pasting over ssh should work fine, though.
