Auto re-ordering History list shouldn't be done when accessing the list...only when adding new items

The History list should be in the order Most-Recently-Copied (MRC). There should be an option where the user can choose to have the Most-Recently-Pasted (MRP) item moved to the top of the list.

Here's my scenario:

I'm editing a large document. In one of the editing phases, I have several pieces of text that I want to paste. Call them A, B, and C for now. I search for something, paste A. Click on another field, paste B. Click on the 3rd field, paste C.

I start off by selecting the text for C, B, and A, and they end up in the history :A,B,C.

With the MRC reordering, I don't copy anything during my editing, so the order stays A,B,C. I paste #1, then #2, then #3, then #1, #2, #3,...

In the current scheme (MRP),
1. I paste #1. History=A,B,C
2. I paste #2. History=B,A,C
3. I paste #3. History=C,B,A
4. I want to paste A, but it moved to #3. History=A,C,B
5. I want to paste B, but it moved to #3. History=B,A,C
With the position of the history items changing every time I paste, I have to consult the list every time, instead of the quicker procedure of relying on the items staying put. I can paste #1, #2, or #3 without having to open the manager, select the history list and then find and select the item I want. With MRC, it's much quicker because I can rely on the order and not the extra 3 clicks and the time to find the appropriate item. When I'm editing a document, I need to focus on the document, not switch focus to anything else. Help me be productive.
Thanks

The way ClipboardFusion works right now the most recently copied text is always at the top, but it seems like it's getting moved around. If you uncheck the "Show clipboard changes made by CF" on the Settings > Clipboard History tab it should help keep the sorted closer to what you are expecting. Thanks!
