Yes, I want to replace a word at the cursor position by
another word yanked from a different position.
I thought viwp followed by yiw and cursor movement is
a well-known sequence of key strokes for this purpose.
Sorry for my previous imprecise description.
With clipboard=unnamed and guioptions=a set,
I found out there happens a hidden yank between
viw( visually selecting a word ) and
p( overwriting the selected visual block with previously yanked word )
both to the unnamed register and the os clipboard register.
So it looks like my previously yanked word
just disappears from the register.
But I don't think it's a bug or something
because it operates as specified in
guioption=autoselect section of vim documentation.
With guioptions=a unset, this problem has gone.
