Script Step 'Copy' does not seem to work with IWP

Operating system version

Description of the issue
The script step 'Copy' does not seem to copy field contents to the clipboard when accessed via IWP.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Create a simple 1-table file with 2 fields:
both of type text, 2nd field a global.
Create 4 scripts
- Copy the indexed field
- Copy the global field
- Set the indexed field to have the data of the global field
- Set the global field to have the data of itself & "---" & itself
All scripts work perfectly in Filemaker Client (version 11) When run via IWP:
- The first two ('Copy') scripts do *not* work
- the second two ('Set Field') scripts work perfectly.
I am using WinXP. It performs the same using Firefox or IE
The 'Copy' script step would copy the contents of a global field to the local clipboard for pasting.
The 'Copy' script step does not seem to copy the data to the clipboard.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
None. The browser makes every impression of waiting for the localhost to return data, but nothing is copied.
