emacs -Q, then `M-: (kill-new "something")`
Then `C-y` in `*scratch*`, string "something" is pasted.
Then go to terminal (Konsole, specifically), `C-S-v`, string "something" is 
pasted, too.

Also, I understand your point, but the fact that the copying is working or not 
working, in that direction, specifically, after using `xdg-open "org-
protocol://store-link?url=URL&title=TITLE"`, etc...
Is really a detail in what is hindering the workflow there. What is hindering 
the workflow is that the cut and past in the opposite direction, namely from 
the terminal to emacs, stops working from that point onward.
And that is really cumbersome.
And again, at that point the only workaround I've found to have the cut and 
past from terminal to emacs working again, is to perform one operation of 
copying from emacs to the terminal.
If ever I omit that workaround step, next time I'll copy something from the 
terminal to emacs, it will end up in pasting the string that has been 
initially inserted into the kill-ring by `xdg-open "org-protocol://store-link?
url=URL&title=TITLE"` possibly hours before, so to speak.

And no, even though `M-: (kill-new "something")` is putting "something" in 
both kill-ring and wayland-clipboard as stated above, `xdg-open "org-
protocol://store-link?url=URL&title=TITLE"`, is only putting "URL" in the 
kill-ring, or so I have observe to the best of my knowledge: and it is not the 
issue in my workflow, only an observation I've made.
