Fix the bug, but that involves understanding whenand why it happens and
what is causing it.

Again, depends on desktop enviroment and whether wayland or X11, but
yes, there are clipboard managers that can show it. KDE has one running
all the time i think.

Yes, Klipper in KDE can display images in the clipboard. However,
clipboard operations are not that simple under the hood. For large data
such as image, the source app doesn't really copy the data but some kind
of announcement, so during the paste the pasting app retrieves the data
from the source app and this source app may misbehave.
