[OS X TeX] Weird BibDesk problem

I can't seem to be able to automatically add publications from  
MathSciNet BibTeX source -- I get an error saying "type 1 not  
supported" if I try to paste, while drag and drop is completely  
rejected. If i make a new publication from the pasteboard, it seems  
that BibDesk can't parse the source to generate the entry, and I have  
to do it manually.

Any idea why this might be? The copied text is:

@article {MR0491519,
     AUTHOR = {Shimura, Goro},
      TITLE = {On some arithmetic properties of modular forms of one and
               several variables},
    JOURNAL = {Ann. of Math. (2)},
   FJOURNAL = {Annals of Mathematics. Second Series},
     VOLUME = {102},
       YEAR = {1975},
     NUMBER = {3},
      PAGES = {491--515},
       ISSN = {0003-486X},
    MRCLASS = {10D25 (10D15 10D20)},
   MRNUMBER = {MR0491519 (58 \#10758)},
