[GNC] Cannot always over-type, clear selected amounts

I am running a similar setup, GnuCash 3.8 in Linux Lite which is a
derivative of Ubuntu 20.04 on a virtual machine.  For me, GnuCash seems
rather slow responding from time to time, and sometimes needing to be
'kicked' by somehow moving the curser to a different field in order to
'wake it up' and enter text keystrokes.  Seems strange that it sometimes
cannot accept text yet accept other keystrokes and mouse gestures.  When I
get too frustrated I close GnuCash and re-open it and it will work better
for a few hours.  If it gets really bad I sometimes need to re-boot.  So
far, I have figured out that it is not overloading the cpus or using enough
RAM to need to swap memory.
