Well, I don't get ANY message -- I double-click on the file, and nothing happens; no (new) editing window pops up. Essentially, it's a NO-OP, so I have no idea what is going on. Every other thing I have tried to open works -- the only thing different about the level I'm to which I am pasting (that I can think of offhand) is the size.
I suppose it's possible that there is a crazy, MBF/BOOM-specific thing that is causing WA to act strangely, but I don't know what it would be -- again, I get no error message.

Okay, so I was trying to paste a bunch of sectors into an already sizeable .WAD, and the program just died trying to access blocked memory. Pasting a smaller subset of the sectors worked, but the program died again while pasting another subset. Thus, I am led to believe that WA can only hand so many [X], where [X} is some attribute directly related to the size of the level.
If it helps anyone diagnose my problem: I am trying to paste a region containing ~5,500 verts into another level containing ~12,100 verts; there's a bunch of line/sidedefs but only about 1,300 sectors all told. I also have over 230 triggers -- maybe that's a problem?
If nothing else works...any way to get a free, non-size-limited copy of DeepSea on a temporary basis? (Just FYI, I am NOT asking for warez or anything unGodly like that, but I really can't afford 30 bucks for a program I may not fall in love with. Of course, if I liked it beyond the C&P operations, who knows...)
