"Start editing" popup should not appear after I've started typing
Open, LowPublic

Description

It's even more annoying to be interrupted by the "start editing" popup/splashscreen when I'm already typing. Please make it not load when I'm already typing in the text area.

This'd be nice to get done. Blocking the activation (but not loading) of the editor until the dialog appears is a tad clunky, but probably for the best.

James: blocking the edit window would be even more sub-optimal for user interaction.

The issue reported here, is that when the human is fast and already has changed the content of the textarea, then the modal placement of a dialogue that interrupts the workflow should not occur.

ie. the solution is not to disable the textarea, it is to skip the modal diablogue when the textarea content has already been changed.
