1. copy an item from one layer
2. add new layer
3. attempt to paste into new layer

Error message:

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Possibly due to event blocking when starting QCAD by double-clicking a file under Windows. Potentially fixed in current development version.
