I noticed that on windows I have problems with copy&paste.

1) within gnustep application(s) I can copy&paste as many times I want
2) from gnustep to another windows application only the first "copy" works

I know there were fixes and i am running a farily recent release of
core, in fact, originally on window I even had problems within GS apps.

Someone can reproduce? or is it my environment?

First question, are you using a current GNUstep version on Windows?
In the CahneLog file you will find this entry:

        instead of pasteboard object to prevent condition where
        paste works only once as observed on Windows.

To me this sounds as exactly a fix to the problem you are seeing. If you are already on a current version, there isn't much I can do for you. My Windows installation has been unusable ever since I switched to Mountain Lion where the version of VMware I own is no longer working. And I am so annoyed about their upgrade policy that I wont buy a newer version. Sadly that VM disk wont boot with Virtual Box. Most likely I will have to reinstall my Windows with Virtual Box and up to now I didn't see much reason for that.

Best thing you can do is inspect the issue yourself.
