Amaya has known problems with Copy/Paste on linux debian (woody) with 
very old GTK2 version : 2.0.2
Maybe you have a old GTK2 version installed ?
Could you join the output of :
pkg-config --modversion 'gtk+-2.0'

I dont understand well the problem, maybe it's a problem with your gtk 
theme ? (FileBrowser is the generic GTK one)

This bug is fixed now.
