After some discussion on the subject on another topic (see https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2022-03/msg00233.html), I have a small patch that prevents the prompt for disappearing on unwanted events, using `read-char-exclusive'. You will find it enclosed.

Subject: [PATCH] lisp/org-clock.el: Fix bug in prompt for resolving clocks

* lisp/org-clock.el (org-clock-resolve):
Avoid unwanted disappearing of the prompt when clicking somewhere, by
using `read-char-exclusive' instead of `read-char'.
