[PD] pasted objects now end up under the original object

Your memory is correct. Quick fix: use CTL/Apple + D for duplicate 
instead of CTL/Apple + C for Copy and CTL/Apple + V for Paste. This 
pastes objects offset from the original, plus it uses less key commands. 
I can't verify the buggy Paste behavior you report right now, although I 
did have a workshop full of n00bs over the weekend and no one using 0.40 
mentioned this problem to me...
