Typing into the year field in the Edit Capture Time dialog is too fussy, making it difficult for people who are slow typists (hunt-and-peck or disabled) to enter the year. If you type just a little slowly, then after 1-3 digits, the dialog thinks you've finished entering a year, and the next digit you type will erase the previous ones. Screen recording:

A perhaps related problem was reported fixed back in 2015.4, though it had somewhat different symptoms. Another user just wasted a bunch of time tripping over this:

The fix should be trivial: the timeout for entering digits just needs to be increased a fair bit.

Tested on LR 8.2 / Mac OS 10.14.3.
