Lightroom Classic 8.2 (macOS): Spaces changes suddenly when Lightroom is active window

For whatever reason I'm having this strange problem where sometimes when LR window is active macOS Spaces changes to second of the three Spaces I'm having. I've dragged the LR window to the third space and it doesn't matter what Screen Mode LR is on (Normal, Full Screen with Menubar or Full Screen), macOS changes the view to the second Spaces after a second or two, but doesn't do it always after changing the active app to be LR.

I do have two display monitors: one iMac 27" (primarily) and one HP EliteDisplay E241i (secondary) in portrait orientation, and I have the Second Display enabled on the secondary display monitor.

What takes? Anyone else having this annoying problem?

I would use the Dock option to force LR stay on the third Spaces but then I wouldn't be able to use the Secondary Display option on the secondary monitor (silly LR). I don't want to use LR in macOS System-Wide Full Screen as it would make LR to have it's own Spaces and I'd rather have my workflow in current three Spaces.
