Ah. Ok. :)
Software: OM2008.8-update, with today's opkg upgrade of /testing feed.

My WPA key is in a text file in my home dir.

Use case A (normal):
1 - launch a GUI text editor(like qtopia "notes") and open the key file;
2 - select the relevant text ("ctrl-a") and try to copy it with  
"ctrl-c" or "ctrl-ins" on the terminal-like keyboard;
3 - call the "settings" via the illume menu (already opened and  
running, just select it from drop-down list);
4 - pick "wifi"
5 - pick my WPA network;
6 - when prompted for password, tap the field to establish focus and  
try to paste the text copied from the terminal: keyboard "ctrl-v" or  
"shift-ins" won't do anything.

Use case B (desperate):
1 - do "cat key.txt" in a om terminal;
2 - select the relevant key text by dragging over the text;
3 - continue from step 3 of use case A.

None of these do anything visible to the password field.
