I can confirm.

And while testing this, I found something else odd.

You start editing the name, and it fails to auto-complete. So you
press "Undo" and then "^Q", and then subsurface does nothing at all.
It should just quit. It doesn't.

Then, ten seconds later, it quits with

  QClipboard: Unable to receive an event from the clipboard manager in
a reasonable time

and it seems to happen 100% of the time, but you have to do one very
specific pattern:

 - open the file from the command line or using the default filem
*not* File->Open

 - In the "Buddy" field, remove the old name, and start trying to
auto-complete a new one. I did "Di<tab>" which *should* auto-complete
to Dirk, but doesn't.

 - the <tab> made it go to the Notes section

 - Press "Undo" to undo the failed edit

 - do ^Q to quit

*Bam*. 10s delay.
