As said in the title, the keyboard is minimized randomly after typing space or special characters while writing a text message or writing in android apps. I installed Utility apps, but restarting the keyboard won't help. After reboot the keyboard works fine for a while. It's quite annoying. :)

As the keyboard can be minimized by swiping down maybe there is something wrong with your digitizer or you tend to pull your finger down when touching a letter. Just a guess.

That was a really good guess, because I didn't know the keyboard can be minimized by swiping down. But that's not the case. I just tried to minimize the keyboard while pressing space, but it won't minimize. And after this bug occurs, it's really difficult and random to get the keyboard to show up again. This usually leads to a reboot that fixes the issue.

This started happening to me yesterday. (sailfish 2.0.0, did a factory reset 2 weeks ago) It happens multiple times a day. A reboot fixes it temporarily.

It's definitely not an accidental swipe action. Also happen when typing numbers.
