When I copy something in Framemaker, including copy specials, 90% of the time it will not copy and I end up pasting whatever is last on the clipboard.
If I then copy it again, it works.
It sounds like nothing, but at the moment my life is spent Ctrl-c, Ctrl-v, Ctrl-z, Ctrl-c, Ctrl-v, Ctrl-zzzzzzz.
Anyone seen this behaviour before?

Yes, and on more than just Windows.
Apart from "helpful" apps stealing keycodes, and perhaps not passing them on if they aren't for that app ...
My impression is that paste-fail can be caused by the copy operation being incomplete at paste. This can happen for any number of reasons, including but not limited to:
A work-around that seems to avoid the paste-fail is to perform the copy using the app's own menu tools, Edit > Copy in FM's case.

Glad you mentioned that: it spurred me to kill off the W*ws shortcut that used to dash in, grab some Photoshop/Illustrator keystrokes and change the keyboard mapping while I'm not looking. Worst of it was, the switch from AZERTY to QWERTY replaces ctrl+z – which I'll admit I need from time to time – with ctrl+w: pretty well the opposite of what I want to do!
