This is happening to me too. I'm running 2.2.6-2 from debian.
It works just fine, until suddenly it just ignores me.
It's not crashed - I attached strace to it and it shows tons of system
calls when I move the mouse or click, and the cursor changes over a text
It's not a dialog, I checked - and it actually happened in the middle of
editing an invoice, so I didn't do any action that would trigger a dialog.
It's happened a bunch of times, and I _think_ it has something to do with
the amount of time it runs without saving, since so far it never happened
when I didn't have unsaved changes. (Of course that makes it super
annoying, I've had to reenter data so many times.)
Which makes me think it's related to the feature to auto-save - except I
don't see the dialog box anywhere, and I searched for it.
But it's also somehow related to losing focus, since it never happens in
the middle of working, only when I move away from it and come back.
It happened in 2.2.4 as well, so I upgraded, but that didn't help. I never
ran 2.2.2 so I don't know if it happened there.
I'm going to disable the auto-save question and see if it keeps happening.
Is the auto-save sensitive to focusing away from the app? Because if it
is, then I think that's culprit. Maybe make it non-modal, but always on
