That's the answer... ;)

Copy-paste from web work without problems on native Linux binaries. Note
that Linux clipboard works different from windows clipboard: I think that
if you copy from a win firefox running on wine to the win AOO running on
wine you'll have no problem, but copying from a Linux app and pasting to a
win app running atop of wine... well, that's wine's problem/bug.
