If you open a field editor window (after say double clicking a field of type 'text' in a table query window), and select the text which is currently there, and then try to paste ^v text previously copied ^c'ed; no text is pasted and the selected text is no longer selected (cursor goes to end of text). Further if you now hit ^v again, it pastes the text you previously selected (very xterm!).

How to repeat:
Open a table query window, where the table has a column of (populated) text. Double click a populated field from this column. (The Field Editor window opens). Select(highlight) the current text in field editor window. Paste (^v) a previously copied (^c) piece of text. Behaviour as above.

Suggested fix:
Change behaviour of pasting over selected text so that a paste does occur.
