Hi there. While working on a PR related to #5165 I try to run the tests following https://github.com/spyder-ide/spyder/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md . When I run python runtests.pyspyder opens and after some seconds a dialog pops up which asks me "test.py has been modified. Do you want to save the changes?" This dialog seems to block the continuation of the test. If I choose "yes", the same ooccurs again. And then the test suite fails.
Is this intended?
Or better: Do I anything wrong?

@cknoll, That dialog is closed automatically, but you can't change the focus of the Spyder window while our tests are running
By changing the focus, I mean selecting another window, like Chrome

Hmm. It seems like something with the automatic closing of the dialog does not work. As far as I can tell spyder does not lose the focus. (I do neither touch mouse or keyboard)
