My apologies. This was caused by me checking 'Synchronise the contents of clipboard and the selection' in the plasma 'Configure Clipboard' dialog.

See attached file 'Virtualbox Copy-Paste-Special Issue-Fix.doc'. Un-checking this fixed the issue. Hopefully this 'bug' might help others with the same issue.
