To narrow this down further, could you try editing
and replace the lines
Exec=orca --no-setup --disable main-window,splash-window --enable
with the line
Exec=orca --replace

then move ~/.config/autostart/orca.desktop out of the way and enable Orca as a
screen reader, then see if the bug still occurs.

The difference between running Orca as an autostart application on the desktop
and enabling it as a screen reader, as I understand it, is that in the latter
case /etc/xdg/autostart/orca-autostart.desktop is run, which has the extra
command line arguments as shown above.

If you can run Orca from /etc/xdg/autostart/orca-autostart.desktop without the
extra options and if the bug doesn't occur then, it's an Orca bug that should
be pushed upstream, in my judgment.
