Nested Manipulate copies to clipboard as "grey box"

It seems a nested Manipulate will not copy correctly as a bitmap.

Here's a toy example:

   Plot[Sin[k x]^n, {x, 0, 10}], {k, 1, 5}], {n, {1, 2, 3, 4}}]

Evaluate this, select the output cell, then choose Edit -> Copy As -> 
Bitmap.  I believe this is only available on Windows.  Then paste the 
bitmap back to the notebook to view it.

The inner Manipulate's contents will show as a grey box.

Is there a workaround for this?

Motivation: I am using 
FrontEndTokenExecute[FrontEnd`SelectionNotebook[], "CopySpecial", "MGF"] 
to obtain a rasterized version of the selection in the notebook.  I have 
not found any other reliable way to rasterize the notebook selection 
without changing the way it looks.
