I recently updated to Android release candidate 7.1.2. Since then I occasionally have a problem where the Swype keyboard opens to the suggestion bar, but that's all.
It seems to recover if I hit Back and then tap the input field again.
I realize it's most likely something Google has done. I have reported this to Google as well.
Android 7.1.2 build NPG05D
Stock ROM, not rooted
Ting GSM (T-Mobile)

Thanks for your attention.
