The time-delayed loss of view in the first situation feels similar to this

Does it make a difference whether you have a specific date selected, or
perhaps other filters?
Does the preview also exit if you do nothing (don't enter a caption, and
just wait 30 seconds)?
Do any specific keystrokes in the caption seem to trigger the exit?
