Could you provide an ECM?

I don't know well this part of the code base. A cursory look at commit
abfc6babcaf6e20a4c12e5c4754ce107ddc0dc7b didn't help much. 

Maybe `org-resolve-clocks-if-idle' could check for
`org-clock-resolving-clocks-due-to-idleness' /in addition/ to

I don't understand. `org-clock-resolving-clocks' is meant to prevent
calling low-level function `org-clock-resolve' unnecessarily. I don't
see a need for setting it also in `org-clock-resolve'.
