Skype click to call disables copy paste in MS Word 2007

I've seen this twice - an installation of Skype Click to Call (which I think is mostly useless anyway) keeps MS Word 2007 from copying and pasting normally.  In my most recent test, I opened a Word doc and edited the font size and font color.  I copied that text and went into a new document.  I pasted it and all formatting was lost.  I went into paste -> special on the new doc, and the only two formats I could paste in were forms of unicode text (rich text and/or HTML or others not there).

After removing Skype Click to Call, I could copy and paste normally between Word documents.
