That happened to me over the weekend.  I am running Windows XP.
 
I opened the .do file in Word and then pasted half to one .do file and the other half to a second .do file.  Worked fine.

I can't comment on the cause of this problem (I suspect it may be platform related, but
there is no indication of your OS), however....
