One issue was that the regular copy/cut items in the menus were not
moving the text to the current vi 'register'. I've fixed that in
However, I wasn't able to reproduce the original report above. Is
it possible you changed the current register w/ " + letter and that
one had a ';' in it. They are saved across sessions so it could have
been from long ago, maybe also accidental.
