pasting problem

I'm using Windows XP SP3 and LibreOffice 4 and I'm experiencing problems when pasting to Writer.

After doing several copy/paste work, for this example, let's us say I've successfully copied and pasted 5 times, on the 6th copy function, pasting into Writer will paste the selection from the previous copy (the 5th copy).

However, if I test pasting into notepad or wordpad, the selection from the 6th copy pastes just fine. But in Writer, it's clipboard is somehow stuck on the previous (5th) copy.

Even if I do several more copy functions (7th, 8th, 9th selection copy), pasting into Writer will always paste the 5th selection copied.

I have tried searching for postings of problems similar to this hoping that there is already a solution, but to no avail. So, I'm hoping someone here can help me.

Thanks in advance!
