In this case system speed does not seem to be the issue. I can un-select and delete with no delay, but cannot overtype or delete/backspace until I un-select.

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.

Sometimes GNUCash gets in a mood, and I cannot over-type or delete selected amount fields in a transaction. I can click aside to deselect and then backspace/delete the digits, decimal and type in the correct number, but I wonder what happened to the usual GUI behaviors? I run Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS and GNUCash 3.8b+(2019-12-29) and Finance Quote 1.49, the latest defined for Ubuntu LTS.
