It looks like this problem was introduced roughly 6 weeks ago with
the pyperclip 1.8.1 release. A fix was subsequently proposed, but
doesn't seem to have been reviewed by the maintainer yet:


Particularly unfortunate as that fix was proposed nearly a full week
before the 1.8.1 release happened and could have been included. Now
everyone is pinning to older versions or unnecessarily setting
envvars in their systems to work around it, and the maintainer has
fallen silent.
