+gui_gtk2 and -multibyte.
You might try setting 'encoding' to latin1 in the GTK2 build to see if it
makes a difference. Of course, there's no way you can paste codepoints >
U+00FF into an 8-bit build of Vim, except as multi-byte gibberish.
The long-term fix, of course, is to stop using those earlier -multibyte
builds. 8-bit _files_ should be compatible between + and - multibyte builds
