I do not experience this problem. I also don't use the same st patches as you. I use dwm.

Here are my versions:
Chromium: Version 80.0.3987.132 (Developer Build) built on Debian 10.3, running on Debian 10.3 (64-bit)
st: HEAD detached at 3be4cf1 (st 0.8.1) with st-scrollback-20190122-3be4cf1.diff

I suggest that you try st without any patches to see whether the bug is still there. Also try the latest st and a different window manager to see if they make a difference.

My intuition/impression is that posting a bug report for a program on this list has a chance (and not a big chance) of a meaningful/helpful response if and ONLY IF the bug occurs in the latest version without patches. Even then, we've got some people who will reply with "Where's the patch?". But, fortunately, we do have some maintainers who prefer a bug report without a patch over no bug report at all.
