That may be an effect of using 'utf-16-le.  Try 'utf-16le instead (no
dash before the "le").  Those two are slightly different, because
'utf-16-le adds and expects a byte-order-mark as first character.

Than 'utf-16le should be the default anyway.  You should be able to
just drop the call to set-clipboard-coding-system in your .emacs.
