^ short video of the bug in action (36seconds, stroke start at 5s then freeze
at 90% autosave process visible)

I've been spoiled by the way autosave was totally invisible in background while
painting on the previous versions. On this version, I noticed a freeze
happening while painting. I couldn't find it during beta because my documents
were more light weight and the postponing mecanism to autosave file managed to
save in between my pause, while switching brushes or navigating canvas. With a
larger document, doing smaller strokes to paint details and with  autosave set
to 5min; this small freezing time becomes quickly a pain and a reason to turn
off autosave.

To reproduce:
1. Open a heavy multilayered Krita file ( or anything that takes long to save).
2. Switch autosave in settings to a minimal value (3min)
3. Paint, and when you see on the bottom of the GUI the autosave progress bar
starts, paint a long stroke without releasing the stylus and keep scribbling.

The long stroke will froze while the progress bar increments. It gives the
feeling of a locked freehand tool during a short second. (video in
