LibreOffice Writer will not copy to clipboard

I’m using LibreOffice on Ubuntu 19.10. I cannot copy and paste text within a Writer document or between Writer documents reliably. The first attempt to “copy” does not copy to the clipboard; sometimes the second attempt works. It doesn’t matter whether I am trying to copy and paste within the same document or between two separate documents.

Copying and pasting from a webpage in Firefox to a Writer document seems to work fine. Suggestions?

Thanks. Sounds like the same issue indeed, and looks like the current fix is “wait and see.” Oh well. I’ll take that over having a totally unique, irreproducible issue any day.
