Stupid question of the hour....

I'm running Plan 9 (plan9-from-bell-labs-u9fs-9639caf1174b.tar.gz) and
9front (9front-8013.d9e940a768d1.amd64.iso) under VMware Fusion
8.5.10.  On the former, I can copy on the Mac and paste into Plan 9,
and the reverse (snarf on Plan 9, paste on Mac).  However, I can't
seem to get it to work for 9front.  I'm pretty weak on the VMCI
interface, and there don't appear to be any explicit references to it
in /sys/src in any case.  There are a few references to VMware (grep
-i ...), but none of those seem relevant to the passing of snarf data.
So, I'm kind of flailing on finding where the hand-off should be
occurring and so I can't really compare the code between the two
releases to see what's changed about it.

Any pointers?

Thanks.

Dworkin
