Lightroom: Keyword input not properly sanitised

If I add the keyword B&W once, the next time I start a keyword with B, I get offered the choice BW (uppercase B, uppercase and underlined W). This is a standard function in databases but I feel that the keyword input should be (further?) sanitised so that the returned string is the same as the input. Thanks.

This is a Windows-specific bug (tested on LR CC 2015.5 / Windows 10).  The LR implementation needs to prefix "&" with another "&" when generating menu items -- otherwise Windows treats the "&" as indicating a standard menu shortcut. Adobe had stamped out several of these bugs in earlier versions, but it looks like this one survived.
