Its good you have a solution, but you have only addressed the symptom
and not the cause. this may be good enough, but I'd suggest that as this
shouldn't happen, there is something else wrong and its likely to cause
you subtle problems in other areas. 

What does emacs show on the mode line? For example, I have a u: at the
left to indicate my script buffer is in UTF-8 as this is the default
locale on my Debian system.

What is the default locale setting on your Debian system and that of
your colleagues?

What major and minor modes do you have loaded? 

Do you get the same 'odd' cut and paste behavior with all terminals
(i.e. gnome-terminal, xterm, rxvt and the linux console)? Are you using
anything like CUA mode? If you open a buffer with VI in a terminal and
paste from emacs into that buffer, do you get odd behavior, such as the
text 'stepping'?
