Import project auto-refresh prevents search navigation
The refresh process that refreshes the page on a timer while importing a project interrupts the "Go to a project" project navigation menu and
"This project" search (top right) even when the user is attempting to navigate away from the page.
Steps to reproduce
- Import a new GitLab project from a previously exported project
- Once the "Importing" screen appears and the screen refreshes repeatedly, attempt to click dropdown arrow next to project name and search for a project
- Watch the page refresh away your happiness

Output of checks
This bug happens on GitLab.com
I believe the related file is importer_status.js.
A possible fix will be to keep track of recent attempts clicks or attempts to type in either the "Go to project" search box or the "This project" search box and reset the timer on the restart of the page.
