Summary0015402: accidentally pasting scribus object in story editor pastes bunch of XML in plain text
DescriptionStory editor is requesting plain text from clipboard. If there is a huge object in the clipboard (which can be e.g. scribus image object with inline data), it will happily try to paste it in, freezing the UI beyond recovery.

What I propose is that (1) at least scribus XML is detected and not pasted as plain text (almost 100% not what the user wants) and (2) if the paste size exceeds something unreasonable (like 50kB of plain text), ask for confirmation before attempting to paste the data.
Steps To ReproduceCreate empty document, create e.g. freehand line. Then create a text frame, open story editor, press Ctrl-V. XML gets pasted.
