Copy seems to Cut

If I copy a track in one album and paste in another it actually moves the track completely (but doesn't move the file). Cut does exactly the same. Surely copy should duplicate and not move the track to the new album (and copy the file too). I want to make a playlist using a folder and copying the files to it. I have to do this using Windows at the moment.

Edit: Using latest version on Windows 7 (has the same problem on older versions on Windows Vista).

What node (in treeview) are you using when copying?

From any album under Album to another album. I have started using Send To > Folder (Copy) for now.

This wont work.
Copy the same track using the Location node.
To locate the track, use: right-click -> Find More From Same -> Folder (Library).
Then copy it to another folder in the Location node.

Note that you will need to edit its properties afterwards (Artist, Album) because Artists/Albums nodes are only classifications of these fields.

Then the question becomes, should Paste be disabled in the other album as there won't be a copy executed?
