hey Tod, this is "by design": S&M paste sends/receives/routings actions just paste routings respectively, as they were copied. I mean, say you have:
- track 1 with a set of routings a
- track 2 with a set of routings b
- track 3 with a set of routings c
- track 4 with a set of routings d

Now say you copy those routings from tracks 1 and 2 and paste them to tracks 3 and 4

(1) You will get:
- track 3's routings = c+a
- track 4's routings = d+b

^^ i.e. multi-track support, another reason is SWS smart copy/cut/paste actions that are also based on this code: they copy/paste tracks (or items/envs but that's another story) with *all* their respective routings (contrary to native copy/paste tracks).

(2) What you describe would lead to this kind of paste:
=> track 3's routings = c+a+b
=> track 4's routings = d+a+b


That being said, as this "issue" is often reported (SWS Issues 174, 506 & other threads) and since these reports can make sense, I'll update routing actions for the next build like:
(1) when copying routings from x tracks / pasting to x tracks -OR- (2) when copying routings from x tracks / pasting to y tracks

(^^ looks complicated but I think it's intuitive..)
