Paste into field issue

I copy a web page. A page out of Wikipedia, actually. Command-A, then
Command-C. It's not a real big page. Maybe three screens.
I move to my stack, already open, put the cursor in a field, and try
to paste. The "edit" menu item blinks blue for a moment, but nothing
I move to Stickies, paste into a sticky note. No problem. The whole
page is pasted instantly. I copy the contents of the sticky note,
move back to my Rev stack, put the cursor into a field and paste. Now
the paste happens immediately.
I'm using Studio.
I first noticed it on my G3 500 mhz Powerbook. I now see the same
thing happens with my 466 mhz G4.
The Activity Monitor indicates no page-outs, so it looks like memory
is not an issue. Closing all other applications doesn't help.
If I try to copy a smaller piece of a web page, then I can paste it
into a field in Rev.
Is this normal behavior? Is it well-known? I don't recall hearing
about it before.
