Thanks for the comment - it may be the nature of the zclass - some
combination of base classes and nesting.

The things I'm unable to paste are instances of a zclass (they're
pointers to document objects) derived from catalogaware, defined within
a zclass (objectmanager/catalogaware) defined within a top level
container zclass (also objectmanager/catalogaware). 

This rather baroque structure suits the application well and works fine
in 2.1.6
