Broken clipboard in Windows

My clipboard on my Windows 8 install suddenly stopped working. At first, I thought Visual Studio blew a fuse, but it turned out to be system wide. Running this in a shell fixed it:

echo off | clip

UPDATE: Well, this works for a little while, and then copy/paste stops working all together. It seems the problem is related to RDP – or Remote Desktop if you will. Open Task Manager and slay rdpclip.exe or RDP Clipboard Manager. You’re welcome.
