but it only happens the first time. If you paste the copied text a second time, everything works O. K.

As comment 1 states, only at the first paste
Comment 7 Justin L 2021-03-26 09:51:00 UTC
repro 7.2+, but not in bibisect-50max

The type of paste doesn't matter. A normal paste does the same thing. Nor does it matter whether the paste is into a footnote or not.

I saw the same thing happening in the oldest of bibisect-linux-64-5.2 (aka 5.1).
When testing bibisect-50max, it didn't seem to re-count the words.
BIBISECT_REQUEST: I think Windows has a nice 5.1 bibisect.

There is no nice bibisect 51 for Linux. I have a daily, debug version, but the debug is much slower. On the oldest commit (which matches the day after 50 master), I notice the word count restarting from 1. So I'm doubtful whether a bibisect will turn up anything...
Comment 8 Aron Budea 2021-04-04 05:09:33 UTC
This started with the following xommit, bibisected using repo bibisect-win32-5.1.
