The upstream bug has been closed with a patch that partially improves the
behavior of the Edit -> Copy menu item.  But it doesn't cover the use case
documented here, so I've requested that the bug be reopened.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-08-28 13:24:49 EDT
Upstream added a fix for this use case to the patch.

Fixed in evolution-2.7.92-6.fc6
