Default [Q] "the clipboard history was cleared"

I've noticed a strange issue, and I'm curious if there's a fix or workaround.

Here's what I'm doing:
1. Open Google now and search
2. Highlight text in the results with a long press and some tap and dragging
3. Tap the copy icon in the clipboard tab at the top.
4. Receive the toast "the clipboard history was cleared"

And indeed, what I just copied will not be I'm the clipboard. Any way to fight this weird Google Now behavior?

You have any xposed mods? I've seen settings for that in those before.
I will not apologize for art.

Affirmative. I don't see anything in Wanam or gravitybox that looks like the right thing.

I expect there's a xposed fix for it...just can't find it. And if there isn't, it's a prime candidate for one!

It sounds like you are using xposed with the Secure Samsung Clipboard module. I use it and see that exact message.

Nope. Not using that mod and haven't ever used it. I am on a Note 3 though.

what ROM are you running? It may be something baked in by the Dev maybe.... just a shot in the dark.

Stock 4.4.2 from OTA, towelrooted. I believe this behaviour was in place before I re-rooted, after the OTA. I believe it's just the default way for GEL/Google Now to behave. I'm guessing the toast being shown is from the Burnt Toast xposed mod I'm using.

But the issue of the clipboard being cleared is, I believe, not due to a mod. I'm looking to change the default behaviour with a mod, or figure out if anyone is doing that already.

It just seems might odd to me that the clipboard function will pop up and sorta work, but Google makes the clipboard dump, preventing you from using it.

I'm stumped. Sorry, I can't offer any additional suggestions.
