It seems like one of the image formats is being preferred.  It's  
possibly that this is because the sending process (Calc) states so,  
which would be odd.    But I don't know the Carbon pasteboard handling  
mechanism, so this is speculation.

Does this work better in 2.x?  We have completely rewritten pasteboard  
code in there.
