In my experience, there are many instances wherein actions involving a Floating Selection behave differently than those involving individual (properly "anchored") layers.

For me, I right-click the "pasted layer" and select "New Layer", and the pasted object shows up as a new layer. From there, I make sure I deselect everything (SELECT> NONE), and then use the move tool (making sure the cursor is over the pasted object) to click on the object in your new layer in order to move it. Hope that is of some help.You can move it first too though (then press ctrl+shift+N to turn it into a regular layer). I find that quicker, but whatever floats your boat. Layer. Whatever.
