Paste buffer creates unnecessary new collections
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Short description of error
Copying to buffer and pasting from the buffer seems to create unnecessary "collections". In my testing having "active_collection=False/True" did not make that much of a difference with bpy.ops.view3d.pastebuffer() Still creates a new collection whether under the active or not

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Create a default new cube scene
  • Duplicate the box couple times
  • Select each of them
  • Ctrl-C to cop them to buffer
  • While selected, press "x" to delete all
  • Now press Ctrl-P to paste the buffer
  • Watch your collections listing.

Confirmed in rBd7d180bd3d8d, but no longer happens in latest master.

Thanks Bretch, I will test it and follow up here.
