ALT+D clears Library selection in German Lightroom (Windows)

In German Lightroom, typing ALT+D to open the Datei (File) menu in Library also incorrectly clears the current selection.  This makes it impossible to invoke the menu's Export, Email Photo, or Plug-In Extras commands, since the current selection is lost before the command is invoked.

This doesn't occur in any other language -- typing the localized shortcut for the File menu doesn't clear the selection.  Perhaps the bug is related to the fact that Ctrl+D is the shortcut for Select None (Bearbeiten > Auswahl Aufheben). 

Tested on LR CC 2015.5 / Windows 10.

I also stumbled over that bug over the last few days - really annoying. Working fast and efficiently in library module is simply not possible due to this bug.

Unfortunately, Adobe just release version 6.5, but I really hope that they will fix this bug asap. There are many Germany customers out there who will really suffer from this bug...
