it must work. it's in 1.3.9 i've tested it.

just one check: you have to use edit > content > copy and not edit > copy (or the corresponding item in the context menu, as i wrote above).

the next question, as craig pointed is to know if you need to do it this way or you should use bleed for it...
it all depends on what you want to achieve (if you want the picture seamlessly spread from one page to the other, use bleed, if you want to continue the picture on the next page with an empty space in between, use paste (absolute).
