Fortunately someone else answered this.  As I said in my post (sorry
about the duplicates, by the way), part of the problem was I didn't
know what the relevant part was.

A couple of you have pointed out I can disable the feature, which I
was aware of.  But I wonder why it is misbehaving.

Interestingly, I've run into another misbehavior: lyx-qt selections
and klipper also do not get along
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=251553 and the
slightly different KDE bugs referenced there).

P.S. I thought that klipper was just about recording selections; I
didn't realize it was also managing the URL popups.
