Hm. I just tested in Linux (the same v0.59) and it happens in Linux as well.

Steps to reproduce:
1. write some lines in a page
2. select the lines and press Ctrl+T (or select Verbatim from the Format
3. Hit the Home key and copy-paste until the end of the line from the
Verbatim-formatted text in another text editor. The pasted text contains
a newline at the end

It happens even when I have space at the end and select until the end of
the line, then unselect the last space: the pasted text contains a new
line at the end. The newline is even present when I only select a part
of a line.

But I just figured something: if I don't select from the begining of the
line, the newline is not pasted. So it seems to be related with the
begining of the lines in Verbatim-formatted text.

Selecting with the mouse is the same.
