Do you by chance exit an active minibuffer, like, for example, when
Emacs prompts for something in the minibuffer, and you click a mouse
in another buffer?  If so, don't do that; type C-g to abort the
command that caused the prompt, before you click where you want.

The same goes for when you suddenly see Emacs saying minibuffer is
already active: you can click your mouse in the minibuffer, and type
C-g, perhaps more than once, to abort the commands that prompted in
the minibuffer and which you left hanging around.
