as i recall the default copy paste behavior is a bit arcane in that the
verify tries to assert the object is indeed a registered meta_type (ie
reg. in initialize) so that it can verify permissions, see cmfcore
folder code for an example of making a custom container which works
around this (basically just override _verifyObjectPaste), or just
register the objects.
