Based on tests with archived builds (on OS X 10.7.5):
- not reproduced with Inkscape 0.91 r13725
- not reproduced with lp:inkscape/0.92.x <= rev 15151,
- reproduced with lp:inkscape/0.92.x >= 15152,
- reproduced with Inkscape 0.92.0 r15299,
- reproduced with lp:inkscape/0.92.x rev 15315;
the lack of clipboard support to paste a path effect seems to have been exposed with the changes in r15152:

Relevant changelog of lp:inkscape/0.92.x:
Revision 15152: Backport from trunk on r.15214. Fix bug #1638888

Also reproduced on Xubuntu 16.04, lp:inkscape/0.92.x rev. 15315.

Not sure it's directly related, but the console show the following message when copying the object with the path effect:
 WARNING **: Unknown LPE type specified, LPE stack effectively disabled
