I think it has always been like this (or as far as I can remember). I also use the 'copy from other window' routine to avoid that arrays are place on top of each other. Is there a way around this (anybody?)?

You can rename an existing array with the message function (ctrl+m). The syntax is 'arrayname rename newarrayname'. That should ease some of the pain :-)
