Copy + Paste functionality not working on external applications (windows)

While this is close to a duplicate bug, its not exactly one, atleast none of the others cover this general issue.
Platform: Windows Vista x64 Ultimate Pidgin v2.5.3 (been occurring in previous versions too)
Steps to reproduce: 1) Copy any text from inside a chat window, info popup, log viewer etc, by selecting the text, right clicking, and clicking copy (or Ctrl + C) 2) Open Notepad/other Application 3) Paste
Expected result: The copied text from the clipboard is pasted into the application
Actual Result: Application cannot understand data in the clipboard, prevents pasting. Nothing happens
Reason Why: Pidgin saves copied text in a HTML block format for use internally in the application. (see attached) While windows expects plain text data.
Suggested Resolution: Add a 'Copy plain-text' feature to right click menu
