Execute command deselects objects

In the middle of drafting today AutoCAD MEP 2012 suddenly no longer allowed me to execute commands on objects that are already selected.  For instance if I select a circle and run COPY, it deselects the circle and the command behaves as if nothing was selected prior.  I can still select the circle after the command executes to copy, but this is driving me crazy as I always select objects first.  Any suggestions as to what happened?  I did not change any settings, and I tried restarting the client as well as a reboot.

Check that PICKFIRST=1


Secondary variables to check: PICKADD, PICKAUTO, QAFLAGS
