Why doesn't paste work with the html widget?

I'm trying to copy html from either a web page or a document into an html widget. I select the text I want to copy from another window or document, hit ctrl C, then go to my already open html widget and hit ctrl V, and nothing happens. I got it to work once last night by first pasting it into a notepad document and then copying that into the html widget, but that didn't work later last night or this morning.
Any idea what the problem is?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello Bob,

I had this problem a few hours ago. I had to wait for sometime after opening the widget before it allowed me to drop the copied code in.

I haven't come across this before and presumed it was a local connection issue but may be related?

That does seem to be the case. If I open the widget and then go do something else for a while, it does seem to accept the paste when I come back to it. Very strange. It's not graceful, but it works until it can get fixed.
Thanks so much for your help on this.
