Hello Amy,

There is indeed a problem with the Mac version when an utf-8 character 
(as the Š character) is copied/cut (ie put in the clipboard).
This problem is in the multi-platform library we use in Amaya, it came 
with the update of this library we made between the 9.55 and 9.99  Amaya 
versions (it worked without problems in the 9.55).
We'll report it. Meanwhile, I made a patch that seems to fix this crash. 
It 'll be available in the next snapshot.

Thanks for the report,
Laurent Carcone
