Do you use a clipboard manager? If so, which one? I use CopyQ and I
often see that message in the terminal. I think it's also related that
sometimes I select something in LyX and the selection is broken. Does
this ever happen to you? It is much better in my experience after the
fix for #11715 (which is in the version of LyX you're using) but I still
see it sometimes.

If you don't use a clipboard manager, then I'm not sure. LyX does some
tricks regarding the clipboard because it does not want to constantly
export code whenever the selection changes (that would be expensive), so
it tries to wait until an application requests the selection.
