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.

Thanks.
