     I could reproduce this and it is indeed realy strange. It is not limited to
     the syntax window, but the same happens in the dataview. If you copy some
     data from outside PSPPIRE (for example from notepad to psppire)  you can
     only paste it in PSPPIRE when you right-click. Data copied from inside
     PSPPIRE (for instance from dataview to syntax editor) can be copied pasted
     the usual way!
     A reason for this.......I have no idea...
Looking at the code near line 385 in psppire-syntax-window.c  I am guessing 
that this is due
to the encoding type declared by the clipboard contents.

Perhaps you could do some experiements to see if the functions 
on_edit_paste and/or contents_received_callback are actually called?
And if the latter does get called, what is the value of the type field
in the GtkSelectionData ?
