Hello,

I have this problem, already reported but not solved in these threads
and maybe others:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2019-02/msg00333.html,
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2010-08/msg00188.html.

I have investigated a little and it seems that there is a timer that
calls org-resolve-clocks-if-idle every minute, and if
(org-user-idle-seconds) is greater than 60*org-clock-idle-time, that
function prompts the user to resolve the clock. The problem is that this
prompt blocks Emacs, and if you are idle (org-clock-idle-time + N)
minutes, the other N scheduled calls to org-resolve-clocks-if-idle occur
immediately after answering the prompt. But for some reason (a bug?),
answering the prompt does not affect (org-user-idle-seconds), so the
prompt appears again, and you have to answer it N times (unless your
answer was to cancel the clock or clock out).

So the problem is in (org-user-idle-seconds), which in my window system
boils down to a call to (current-idle-time). It should return 0 after
answering the prompt, but in my system it keeps counting up. At this
point I stopped investigating since that function is defined in C.

Since this bug is already old and I have not found much information
about it, I assume that in most systems answering the prompt does reset
the idle timer and this bug does not occur. As a quick fix for those
systems where this is an issue, we could reset the idle timer ourselves
after the prompt in org-resolve-clocks-if-idle.

What do yo think?
