      Hello Gary,

      I
      figured out what's happening thanks to your reply.
      Actually what I tried to do was to disable guioption_a. 
      The manual says when guioption_a is on, the visually selected block is automatically 
      yanked to * register - thus to unnamed too - upon exiting visual mode.

      That why the previously yanked word is overwritten before 
      the explicit 
      paste actually happens during the
      <
      viwp> command
      .
      It's like there is one hidden yank between <w> and <p>.

      I think you want to retain the behavior of "autoselect" in
      'clipboard', so rather than

          set clipboard=unnamed

      try either

          set clipboard=unnamed,autoselect

      or

          set clipboard^=unnamed

      HTH,
      Gary
