Lightroom: Export breaks Merge shortcut

I just successfully exported some images from my catalog with [right click] => [Export]. Now the shortcut for merging photos to a panorama [ctrl]+[m] repeatedly leads me to a select folder dialog and not the panorama dialog. Headlessly merging HDR does still work.
German system, graphics processor enabled. I cannot tell for how long this has been around, I just noticed it today due to exporting a couple of images while merging panoramas.

I'm confused how this can happen at all. Somehow the export dialog has to register a new shortcut with the progrfam itself? Can the select export folder dialog be called with [ctrl]+[m], once the export window shows? How can this dialog be called, when its "parent" is not instantiated? Is there some object floating in nirvana?

From the other thread you posted in:
I'm running a German Win10 with a (probably) German LR CC and German keyboard layout. See my linked post for more details/some ideas/questions.
And thanks for replying! :)

I'm not able to reproduce this on my Windows 10 / LR CC 2016.6.1.  A couple of suggestions:

- Reboot your computer.

- Delete LR's preferences: http://www.lightroomforums.net/showthread.php?25197-Resetting-the-lightroom-preferences-file-updated. LR not infrequently soils its own preferences file, causing the user interface to do screwy things.

It might have been just a hickup. After exporting an image and hitting [ctrl]+[m] the correct dialog pops up. Hmmm
