Path with Gradient Stroke Pastes as Outlined Path

Hi guys. Here's a new one to me, and I've been using this app forever.

 

I'm working on a logo, and stroking my path with a gradient. Nice, and normal. But, when I use copy/paste for that path, it invariably pastes as an outlined path! Doesn't happen with Option dragging, just pasting. To get a path into another document, I have to arrange the pages and option drag! Wild!

 

This seems like a new thing. Is it just MY bug, or is anyone else experiencing this?
Yes - btw, I work around it by either option dragging or pasting a solid stroked path and applying the gradient afterwards. And this happens with no width tool applied. Any feedback'll be appreciated.

PS - Mac OS 10.13.6 (I know, old) and newest Illustrator

Is there any extension in your system that enhances the clipboard?

There are other apps that are known to mess with the clipboard, such as antivirus or screensharing or the like. What's running?

I do. I wonder if that's it... weird, though!

It's been reported on Uservoice. It might be a bug on the Mac version. I can copy/paste a gradient stroke without it getting expanded on Windows.

I can do it on the Mac without problems.

It's an issue with certain tools that mess with the clipboard.
