@advocatux Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I do believe the issue may be related, and I will likely add my part to the github comment chain.

Keyboard hidden when unlocking device to "Messaging" app.

Issue: Keyboard remains hidden from view when unlocking device to "Messaging" app. Any combination of tapping on the messages display panel, or the text box will not activate the keyboard.
The only way to bring the keyboard up is to either back out to the previous screen (messages list), or to bring notification panel down/up.
RE: Ubports Bacon keyboard not showing when replying to message
@Lakotaubp Stable channel, OTA-7. I can try a newer version through "Release candidate" or "Development", and see if that solves the issue.
Ubports Bacon keyboard not showing when replying to message
Keyboard not popping back up after unlocking phone to reply to text message. When clicking on the text field, keyboard still does not pop back up until notification slider is brought down and up, or by backing out to messages list and back into the message conversation.
