Excel 2000, Cannot empty the Clipboard error

Microsoft Excel 2000, Cannot empty the Clipboard error
 
I frequently get the Excel error: Cannot empty the Clipboard. I am using Excel 2000, no service packs applied.
This especially seems to happen when I am using Excel in a remote desktop connection (RDC).  
 
Today I found a workaround for the problem. I used to reboot the machine to get rid of the error only to get it again in a little while. Now I found another way to work around this problem.  
 
Close Excel and open MS Word. Then open Excel again and the problem is gone. You don't need to do anything in Word. Just leave it open in the background.
 
Amazing but true!

The Cannot empty the Clipboard error is actually due the proces rdpclip.exe. If you kill this proces the clipboard is fine again.
