Edits are stop previewing after several keyboard adjustments

Steps to reproduce on macOS with Lightroom 2.2

  1. Take a photo to Edit mode
  2. Pick any adjustment (for example Blacks)
  3. Use up/down arrow keys to lower and increase Blacks
What I expect to happen:

Lightroom should continuously change the value for Blacks *and* update the preview to reflect each adjustment step.

What actually happens:

Repeatedly across different macOS machines, with different photos, the first quick succession of adjustments correctly updates the preview. If another adjustment is made in either direction (up or down) then the preview stops updating to reflect the adjustment. It''s only after the Enter key is pressed or the mouse is used to move the adjustment slider that the preview starts updating to reflect changes again.

This makes Lightroom a fairly terrible tool for precise adjustments.
