'Ghost' keyboard input in android apps (Sailfish X)

Sometimes I go to an Android app, and try to type, and it acts as (1) if I am hitting the backspace constantly, so any text input is immediately deleted, or (B) the keyboard keeps disappearing, as if I am hitting outside a text input box.

Restarting Dalvik stops the issue.

Anyone else having this?

old bug sometimes waiting a while works, also for me it only impacted some android apps not others and not SFOS apps, and i havent seen it in Sailfish X yet

Not sure if this is the same bug, but I have similar issues when letting the text input field in signal selected/active and then the screen gets turned off. I can type all I want without any input being entered in the text field. At least for Signal, you can simply go back to the overview and select the conversation again, then it works again.
