I cannot reproduce the issue.
What happens if you paste as Smart Objects?
Does the path have a Stroke in Illustrator?
Good questions. Sorry. Fails with and without stroke. With stroke it sometimes fails in a novel way -- it creates a compound path on the inside and outside of the stroke. Can paste as a Smart Object (I think as a Layer Object) and use that as a workaround to make a selection.
With the simple objects I had, it was easy to work around by ungrouping and releasing the compound path in AI, then selecting both objects in AI and copying and pasting them into PS. But, if there's a new quirk related to what happened (and it's not just a corrupt file or object), these workarounds aren't addressing it.
(In other words, I managed to get something to work, but not the proper workflow.)
As I mentioned I could not reproduce the issue, could you provide the ai-file?
