I too have encountered problems recently! From "Picasa 3" where I have photo
albums stored, I can copy photos, but when I try to "paste," there is no
functional "Paste" available! Also, when I upgraded to Version 3.0.1 from 3.0 I
no longer seem to automatically save in ODT format; (It just says .text?) I
noticed there was a much larger difference in content(3.0=323MB whereas
3.0.1=142MB). When I downloaded to my Windows XP system, could I have lost
something? I have 18 Chapters of a book I am writing, and only the first 15 are
saved in ODT. All was fine before my upgrade! The reason I am attempting to use
this system is because Word crashed on me before, and I lost half of my work. I
can't afford to do that again!

Not sure who you were directing that comment to but yes this is easily
reproducible at least on my computers and virtual machines. I first saw this
issue on the Ubuntu build and then verified it on the official build.

Changing summary slightly, this also happens with PNG images that have a
transparent background.  However, Insert >> Picture works fine with the same image.

Still broken in milestone 300m68 (3.3).
