What is interesting though is that other applications don't have this
issue. The micro text editor for example allows me to shift-select, copy
with ctrl-c, and paste with ctrl-v out of the box. That makes it hard to
see how this could be a WSL issue. In every context other than
textadept, ctrl-v seems to be doing what I would expect it to.
