|Paste Corrupts Code? [message #872361]

I recently started using Eclipse Helios on CentOS 64-bit Linux release 6.2. I am using it in a VMWare VM running on top of Windows 7-64. I am using the Perforce plug-in.|
In the C++ environment I frequently find code from the clipboard, or code that I have replaced from the clipboard, dropped at random places in the code. Here is an example, edited to make it a little simpler than in the original. In particular N and G are really qualified variable names that are about 20 characters long.
Take the line
I copied G from somewhere and then pasted G over N. Later I got a compiler error, on this line, further down the same file:
Notice how the text I replaced (N) has been placed at the end of an unrelated line.
Sometimes a whole block of text I have copied is moved to some other random location.
Is this a known bug, a usage error, or a new bug? Could it be related to being used on a VM? I have used a range of other editors on VMs for the last few years and have not seen this behavior before.
