(In reply to Stefan B. from comment #3)
So both sc and vt are buggy, but sc's bug is definitely less objectionable.

Keeping track of "printed a space" vs "empty" character cells will be needed to
properly address this and PR260963, but until that happens we should handle it
the same way as sc.

Presumably just:

for each line in copied region:
    if RH column contains space
        copy full line to selection buffer
        search backwards to find last non-space char
        copy line from first col until last non-space to selection buffer
        add \r\n
