It does not come off in clumps, it does come off in curls, but bits of the curls really like to stick to the scraper and get gummy.
I like the idea of a wax that leaves the scraper clean.
Well, this sounds normal, actually. Like Comprex said, even "blue" wax, e.g. CH6, will still stick to the scraper sometimes. Wax softer than that definitely will. It's not like planing wood.
I just flip my scraper a lot until I have to use my file card to brush the wax off the scraper. No problem.
CH4 will leave the scraper pretty clean. Just don't inhale too closely.
