Cannot copy measure repeats

In MuseScore, after I copy a measure repeat, when I paste it into an empty measure the program crashes and closes.
(Using Windows XP SP2)


oops. To recreate the scenario:
1. Create a new document for any instrument that doesn't use the grand staff (specifically, Brass>Horn)
2. Create at least three measures.
3. Leave the first measure as is.
4. Using the Palette, go under the repeats section and drag the measure repeat to the second measure of the piece.
5. Click on the second measure and copy using Ctrl+C.
6. Click on the third measure and paste using Ctrl+V.
7. MuseScore crashes.
(Using MuseScore 0.9.5)
NOTE: If using the grand staff, it just makes the measure you paste it on blank.

With 0.9.6RC1 it does not crash but the user does not have the expected result.

Expected result : Measure 3 should have a repeat measure sign.

Status (old) active fixed

Barlines (repeats) are not copied if you copy a range. As you can paste it to an arbitrary time position this would not make sense. I doubt that its useful even in the special case of copy/paste full measures.
