Copy Input From Above works by looking for the last cell with 
Evaluatable->True set.  My guess is that you've either modified your 
default stylesheet so that the Output style has Evaluatable->True, or 
you've modified your global preferences in the Option Inspector so that 
Evaluatable->True is set at the global scope...doing either of these would 
have exactly the effect you describe.
