I can confirm this, with tip and 0.5 and 0.4. I'm surprised I hadn't
really noticed it before.

Oh, I know why. It's because it's in the copy part, not the paste
part; try "printf 'XXX\n\n\nXXX\n' | xclip" and it'll paste fine in
st. I guess I don't copy much out of terminals using the mouse.

A bug, presumably.
