Lightroom: Right click and paste from previous doesn't work if you are too quick moving between images in develop mode

Lightroom 6 (though problem was there in previous versions as well).

When editing in the develop module, if I move to the next image in the catalogue and right click and choose "Paste from previous", the develop settings from the previous photo don't always apply first time. I have found that if you right click very soon after the next image is displayed and choose paste from previous, you can see that Lightroom is attempting to paste from the status above the image, but it doesn't do anything.

I have to wait until the new image has been displayed for a few seconds before right clicking and pasting from previous for it to work first time.

I often have a few thousand images to process quickly, and it is frustrating to have to wait. Often I right click too early, and have to wait for a failed paste operation to complete, before repeating the process which wastes valuable seconds.
