"Paste from clipfile" unexpectedly doesn't move cursor

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open a file in mcedit.
  2. Select few lines of lines.
  3. Execute Edit -> Copy to clipfile
  4. Move cursor few lines to clearly see paste.
  5. Execute Edit -> Paste from clipfile
  6. Observe that cursor stays where it was, i.e. now at the beginning of newly pasted lines. Whereas normal behavior of any "paste" command out there is to place it after the last pasted char. Indeed, typical workflow is: you type some text, you remember that "substring" you need now is already available, you go there, copy, go back, paste, and immediately continue typing.

Described behavior is highly confusing, essentially, with such behavior, clipfile is not usable as clipboard replacement.

This is filed against 4.8.8-223-gd6cd226, but was like that at least in 4.8.x is not for very long time.
