It works here with RR 2.6.1 and WinXP as well. You might want to 
explicity capture the copyKey message with a script in your stack which 
does something like:

on copyKey
   if the selectedText is not empty then copy
end copyKey

Keep in mind, Rev traps the copyKey message when in development mode. 
But if you suspend development, you will find it works.
