Photoshop: Pasted content different depending on document size

I wish that photoshop was more precise and consistent in how it pastes items into newly created layers.

For example, if I copy a 10 x 10 pixel circle onto the clipboard and then create a new document to paste it into the resulting pasted graphic will look different depending on if I set some padding in there or not.

If I make my new document 12 x 12 px the circle will paste in with nice clean edges and look great.
If I leave the default size, 10 x 10 px, you can see the circle will then bleed right to the edges, making it look blurry and somewhat square in comparison.

This has happened consistently for many versions of Photoshop now and still happens in CS5. I'm currently creating a bitmap for each letter of the alphabet to use in a video game and if I don't take the extra step of adding 1 pixel per size then the resulting pasted letter will typically deform so that at least 1 edge is flattened. If it's a round letter like 'o' then it will deform on every side, every time.

Okay, hopefully this will add a screenshot of what I'm talking about.
