Shift-Del in VS2008 very nicely deleted the whole line and if the option "Apply Cut or Copy commands to blank lines when there is no selection" in Tools -> Options -> text Editor was not set it would not replace the contents of the clipboard with an empty string! Duh!
Now in VS2010 Shift-Del no longer works on empty lines unless the above option is set. But now this means that I am overwriting my clipboard with empty text.
Update: I have since found that Ctrl-Shft-L will perform an Edit.LineDelete command which deletes the line regardless of what's in the clipboard. I have now remapped this command to Shft-Del and all is good.
