Ah, I see -- within the same editor, clicking before pasting causes 
this problem.  The problem doesn't appear if pasting into another 
split.  In fact once you paste into another split, the problem doesn't 
occur in the first editor either.  Weird.  I do think that's a bug.  
Thanks for pointing that out.
