UBB Code insertion point always at *end* of text field?

Am I missing something subtle when using the "instant UBB code" buttons? Regardless of where the insertion point is, it always places the tags at the END of the text I've entered so far. This is a pain because usually, I am about to paste in some code someplace, and I want to paste it at the insertion point (which works) but I also want to enter some formatting tags at the insertion point just before I paste.
Is there a way to honor the current insertion point?

I agree it is a little odd and takes some getting used to - I mutilated the first couple of posts I made after the change
What I do now is just let it create it all at the bottom of the page then cut and paste to where I want it.
 
it's a teeny, tiny, wafer thin ad:
