I have a little problem concerning org-clock.
When resolving clocks, either because of a long idleness or because of
dangling clocks, there is a prompt to ask the user if they want to keep
idle time, substract it, etc...
But when another event than the response occurs (typically, I come back
to my computer, I don't see the prompt and I click somewhere), an
exception "Non-character input event" is raised, and the prompt
disappear, making it impossible to resolve the clock later.

When googling the error message I saw that the problem might be due to
the use of the function read-char when prompting the user, which is
indeed used in the function that resolve clocks.

Is there a solution to wait for the user to answer the prompt, like a
classical yes-no prompt?
