There is `timeout` in Textadept

That's great to hear. One could maybe even automate the testing by
(randomly) selecting some text, copying it and then reading the actual
Windows clipboard with something like this

From Textadept you could use `spawn`

This could also be an alternative to relying on `ui.clipboard_text`
which didn't work.

Interesting indeed, maybe fewer on Windows 10, from the other issue it
seemed it started there.
