hmm I have used almost any version of IE from 4.0 and betas of Mozilla 
from 0.6 up until 1.0 and I have never experienced that bogus/erroneous 
text fields are posted. I mostly work with structured text though.

And here you are experiencing it on several platforms.

Could it be that some of the text you are pasting is tripping up a 
parser somewhere ??

What kind of content are you editing in the text fields??

The only time I have experienced something similar is when I have 
mistakenly submitted a form via GET instead of POST and hitting the 
(approximate) limit of 1024 character in the form.
