During yesterdays installs, I had no problems with this, but I did not 
look for them in this place either.
Todays tests,i.e. specifically looking on WindowsXP (SP3+fully patched) 
and Windows2000 (SP4+fully patched):
- highlighting works with mouse and keyboard
- copying/cutting texts works
- pasting works, but *does not* erase the highlighted text
- typing *does* erase the highlighted text (which is the reason for my 
lack of problems, as my TeX Live will use folders that do no exist at 
that point of the installation anyway)
