I've the following in my init.el
(setq org-edit-src-auto-save-idle-delay 5)
If I open in my org file a R code block with C-c ', edit into the opened org-src buffer with the ESS major mode activated and wait for 5s, I can see autosave kicking in and my org buffer gets updated with my new code. But when I keep editing it doesn't save anymore. So it only save ones after the first 5s when the org-src got openend and then it stops.
Can this somehow be fixed or is this behaviour expected? I have quite big source block so this can be an issue.
