I verified it on W98 too. It does NOT occur on Linux. So the problem is
probably in lies in the NT/W9x clipboard management. I "cut" on linux
by use of `x-set-selection 'PRIMARY <string>' and also (indirectly) by 
`x-store-cut-buffer-internal 'CUT_BUFFER0 <string>' (I need the cut
buffer because I use VNC that transfer the cut buffer to and fro the
M$Windows clipboard). I checked with other W98 native applications and
my conclusion is that you can not paste from the M$Windows clipboard 
(in text mode) after the 1st NULL.
