bug: copy/paste implicitly converting vector to bitmap

All users can miss this bug's conversion until well after it happens.
New users can be disoriented and discouraged. "What did I do wrong? And when?"

Please fix this basic UX mis-behavior
or
warn the user when paste is about to do the wrong thing.

bug confirmed in
     Inkscape 0.91 r13725
     OS X 10.11.6
     XQuartz 2.7.11 (xorg-server 1.18.4)

Thx for working on Inkscape
and any relief you can muster wrt to this bug.

PS.
8 year old bug. wow.
copy/paste must not a very glamorous task ;)
