New Long-press to paste selects trailing spaces

Suppose I have some text in my clipboard that I want to append at the back of some other existing text which ends in a space, e.g. like this:

in clipboard: "This is copied text".
in textbox: "This is the first sentence. " (notice the trailing space)

So I long-press on the textbox so that I can select 'Paste', but the trailing paste is then auto-selected. When I paste, the "This is copied text" overwrites the space. I then have to go back and manually insert the space between the period and the pasted text.

This also happens to other whitespace characters, e.g. when I have line breaks at the end of existing text in a textbox, and I want to paste to the end, the line breaks are pasted over and I have to reinsert them manually.
