I tested in both XP and win7 with Pidgin 2.10.1 (libpurple 2.10.1) and google Chrome 18.0.983.0 canary build. In both cases the bug was easily reproducible and has not been fixed.

Closed as duplicate of #604.
It is actually correctly copying and pasting the text - the reason that it shows up as the squares with numbers in them is because the font being used to render the text input can't render the Chinese glyphs.

The ticket I'm marking this as a duplicate of has more information about the font situation.
