After getting my last Lightroom CC update (April 2016) the import window keeps popping upen while I work on pictures in the develop module. Does this happen to anyone else, and does anyone know how to make it stop?

Do you have a card connected to your computer that keeps mounting and unmounting? If you go to Preferences > General... and uncheck "Show Import Dialog when a memory card is detected" does import stop popping up?

I haven't encountered such issue. I have Lightroom CC on PC + on a macbook pro. This kind of import window pops up when it detects a new drive connected with images to import. Depending some configuration, it could also pop up when you have synchronized a directory and not imported the new files from that directory, Maybe you connected a new mobile drive to your computer and will keep pop up until you either disconnect the drive or cancel the import.

Nothing new had been connected and memory cards had been ejected correctly when this started happening. It started straight after the last update.
The Preferences > General... - "Show Import Dialog when a memory card is detected" was already unchecked.  So I checked it, restarted Lightroom, unchecked it and did another restart. 
This might have helped as it's been more than 3 minutes since it last tried to get me to import something. 
Thanks.

Try Preferences > General... - and make sure "Show Import Dialog when a memory card is detected" is unchecked.
