Why don't arrow keys "nudge" selected objects after I paste them?

I do a lot of copying and pasting of navigational objects, and am really curious why, after I paste and the object is still selected (bounding box active, nothing else clicked), when I use my arrow keys to nudge them (since there seems to be no "paste in place" functionality), I wind up jumping between slides instead of nudging the selected objects. Is this a bug in my version? I'm completely updated.

Yes, and this is what confuses me. I'm definitely not selecting them in the timeline, because I know the arrow keys will only move them in the timeline that way. 

I just can't figure out why I can't always nudge things that are already selected since I've just pasted them... sometimes it works, sometimes I wind up in a whole other scene...!
