Photoshop: Pasting type into a new layer after free-transforming upsets formatting

Here is how I was able to finally reproduce it:
I chose "72 px" as original size for demonstration purposes, but it did not matter where you start, or what percentage of transformation you choose

- Enter type with 72 px
- resize the original layer using "free transform" methods to 50%
- copy parts of the text, and paste on a new layer
- result: the size entered is 72px, and not 36px as expected
- now change the original layer text to 72px using the type panel
- copy text again into a new layer
- result: the size is DOUBLE (144px)

I repeated many times, the ratio using in free transform decides how big the new pasted type is... the problem is that it occurs way to easy than I described here, all what I had to do is free transform using the mouse, then set the the size to something close from the panel, after that, its impossible to copy parts of the text into a new layer.
