Bug report #9972
Selecting other map items does not respond after a while
|Affected QGIS version:||2.2.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||duplicate|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||18467|
After working a while with map items like legend or scale bar, the selection got "frozen" on the last item, and it is impossible to select another one.
E.g. Making changes in a Text field. Text field is selected and editable. Clicking on the scalebar to select it (with the proper tool) yields no reaction.
The focus remains on the textfield.
The Menue and the toolbars are still fully functional. The only way to be able to procede with my print composer is to make a copy ("Duplicate Composer") or to close and reopen the hole project.
QGIS 2.2, Win7 64 bit, OSGeo4W 32bit advanced install

I can confirm that this happens to me frequently as well. It only seems to be an issue when opening pre-2.2 projects in 2.2.
I haven't yet been able to reproduce exactly what causes it to happen, but it's "frozen" on me three times this morning working on a project. Unfortunately the only files I have handy all contain large proprietary data sets and I can't upload. I will try to find or create a simple project to demo the error if I can.
