I believe you need to ENABLE that feature in the SETTINGS > Advanced tab. Did you do that?

Sorry -- just saw this. What I was talking about was that there's a SETTING > GENERAL > Advanced > Shared Clipboard popup where the bi-directional feature must be enabled, and by default it isn't. So if the user I was responding to still didn't see bi-directional clipboard even after installing the Guest Additions, perhaps that's why it worked for me, but not for him.
