You can do some testing with xclip[0] which allows you to manipulate
the clipboard and also see requests made to xclip from X to see
what's going on. If run with the -quiet flag it will stay in the
foreground and notify you of every request it gets. That way you can
see if the clipboard sharing program is passing on the requests to the x
client that currently has the selection.

Or just attach a debugger to st and see what's different between the
first requests that work and the second ones that don't. That might be
even easier.
