[MonoDevelop] Copy empty clears clipboard

I don't know if this qualifies as a bug but it certainly is a
nuisance. Control-C copies to the clipboard any selected text. When
pasting, I typically move to the destination location, and Control-V
to paste. Often, I inadvertantly Control-C rather than Control-V,
which MD interprets as a desire to copy an empty selection, this
clearing whatever I had copied, and requiring me to re-select,
re-copy, and ever so carefully paste. I admit my record do-over count
is greater than three in a single paste-effort. The other two IDEs
open on my desktop (Wing, and Eclipse) do not do this, they ignore
Control-C if no text is selected. I wonder, should this be filed as a
bug? Can it be "fixed" via a preference?
