I'm not so sure.  Here the frontend handles RAmiga-V as a paste
shortcut, and that works wonderfully.  However, something (I'm
suspecting the core, as I haven't added any code for this) is trapping
Ctrl-V and handling that as a paste operation too.

You've neglected to mention what platform you are using, but what I
suspect is happening, is the frontend is handling Ctrl-V as a paste
operation, and that shortcut is also reaching the core, which handles
it again as a paste - hence the two pastes.

The core handling of Ctrl-V (and any other similar shortcuts) probably
needs to be tracked down and obliterated.
