Short description of error
When copying/pasting objects via Buffer, the objects are pasted in the same layer of origin, as opposed to the active layer in target file.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open two Blender files. Create a cube in each one. Move cube in file 1 to layer 2. Copy (copy selection to buffer, Control+C) cube from file 1. In file two, make sure you're on layer 1. Paste from buffer (Control+V).
Object is pasted in layer 2 by default, instead of in target layer. Adding an option to choose layer would be useful.
