I can't repro it on windows 7 - it may be a side effect from another application.

Can you try to get gedit for windows:


Do you have the same problem there ?

I can't verify the issue on my win 7. I assume that something interferes with the gtk clipboard on your system. Would've been nice to test gedit as well.
