What happens if the user copies something else to the clipboard a few
seconds before pass blanks it?  Copying something non-sensitive and
having that data mysteriously disappear from the clipboard is
counter-intuitive and gets in the way.

I think checking the clipboard content before blanking is still a good
thing to do.  Blanking if it's still the password is fine, but
destroying new data is not.
