They actually work quite different. If you press ESC immediately after
R then nothing is changed in the buffer. However if you press escape
after cw then the word is still deleted.

So with respect to clipboard handling I think both are consistent and ok.

But maybe they do not behave the way vi does in this cases. (But that
is a totally different matter than this bug report.)
