I am using 2.14.2 and use CTL+C & CTL+V all the time without any
surprises; it simply works.

I suspect that you are using 2.14.2 on Windows 7 computer as user who
does not have Administrator provileges. If that is the case, by
default, R will not have access to the clipboard, hence the failures.
Try starting R as Administrator, check Copy and Copy + Paste, and
update this thread.
