The problem here is that fixUpInsertion is deciding you can't put a table in a paragraph but not resolving properly.

More detail: the problem is caused by ContentEditable (surprise). When you paste a table into an empty paragraph, the paragraph is *completely* deleted, which the paste context comparer can't currently deal with.

Part of this appears to be caused by table captions. Investigating.
