Editing in Lightroom causes keyboard to stop working altogether

In Lightroom 5.5, when I've been editing pictures for a while, my keyboard suddenly becomes unresponsive in a system-wide manner, as well as in Lightroom. That is, the keyboard stops functioning altogether, until I log out/in again, eventhough the bluetooth connection is present and the batteries are fresh. Upon logging back in everything is back to normal, both system-wide and in Lightroom.

I have read about other users having this very specific issue, but thus far I have been unable to find a solution. I have not experienced this behaviour earlier, until I switched from Aperture to Lightroom some two weeks ago. This leads me to conclude that Lightroom is the most likely culprit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Addendum to OP: this behaviour also occurs when using a wired keyboard. That is, it also occurs on my MacBook Air while using the "onboard" keyboard, which, of course, is wired.
