When I try this without having any region, Emacs says
The mark is not set now, so there is no region
and doesn't kill anything.
So I'm guessing that you do have a region in those cases, just not a
highlighted one. You can make it highlighted by "C-x C-x" (twice, if
you want to return to the original location). I suggest to grow a
habit of doing that before each C-w, because, really, Emacs does here
what you told it to do.
