      As near as I can tell, this is related to the cursor position, not the
      display position. As a workaround, I could click in the open document before
      running a clip. Still, the question is whether the window position can be
      restored after running a clip.

      Have you tried Search-Set (and Go) Bookmark?
      I don't use this feature myself but it sounds like what you are after.
