Something that's not quite clear after reading the manual wiki:
In interactive stack mode it's possible to scroll half a line above and below the entries. Why is that so?
When you need to paste a block of objects it's usually inserted where you have the cursor. That half step allows you to insert before the top element and after the last one.

After that, error messages are not vanishing automatically anymore and the mode indicators when pressing alpha are out of sync. Looks like some timer stops here.

Thanks for considering.
That glitch only happens on Linux. For whatever reason, it seems Qt timers go crazy on Linux (they are used to simulate the timer of the calc and present a familiar hardware to newRPL). After a while either the timers go extremely slow, or extremely fast, or they stop altogether.
Slow: You can see the cursor stops blinking but key repeats still work, but take much longer than normal.
Fast: Pressing cursors left and right on a long line you'll see it go all the way left/right in milliseconds.
Stop: Key repeats stop working, also if you throw an error or use the inline help, the help stays forever on screen, covering your status area and the second menu.

These glitches are known, only happen to the PC version and only on Linux, and I have no idea how to resolve them, unfortunately. I'm doing nothing but starting a timer and counting ticks, I can't see anything wrong with that. I noticed the glitch on Qt 5.9, now we are up to 5.13 and it is still there.
