IainB, I am sorry, I should have told that I already did View | Options | Backup Maintenance | Verify or Repair Database (as well as tried to restart Clipboard Help+Spell) before writing this bug report in the first place. None of it worked. But thanks for the tip!
Here is the CHS statistics:

One strange thing about the "Database File" is that there is no file or folder called "C:\Users\Jesper\Documents\DonationCoder\Clipboard Help+Spell\Database\ClipboardHelpAndSpell" on my computer. But the folder "C:\Users\Jesper\Documents\DonationCoder\Clipboard Help+Spell\Database" is there and contains:
Is that as it should be?
And mouser, the clips are simply in All/Clipboard/Old and All/Clipboard/New. And none of the ones I tried to delete were Favorites.
When I try to delete from the Recycle Bin, I do get the warning that they will be permanently deleted – but still, after saying Yes to that, the clip stays. The "line cursor" ("current record marker") goes to a completely other place in the Recycle Bin, but the clip I wanted to delete was not deleted.
All the clips are written in a grey font, I noticed, which seems a bit odd. I don't remember if that is normal in Clipboard Help+Spell? I would expect just a normal black font... Is that some kind of indication that they cannot be deleted (that they are "greyed out")? But if so, why would I get the warning...
Because of all my special settings and adjustments over the years I don't feel very much like uninstalling Clipboard Help+Spell, deleting all settings, and starting all over with a clean install to see if that helps. But is there perhaps some way to export my settings in text form, so I can easily get them back after such a clean reinstall?
