Steps to reproduce:
1. Place the caret at non-zero * horizontal position (as where the asterisk is in this line).
On Windows, it does what I want it to do, which is to paste a copy of the line.
On Linux, it pastes from the caret point, which is not what I want.
If you do decide to go with the linux behaviour by default, then please at least make this a configurable option.
But I'm OK with it working across the board in the Windows manner.
