After pressing Enter in a dialog box in Lightroom RC 3.5 the focus changes to the input box for typing in the keywords.
This behavior is highly disturbing a normal workflow.

Please don't mind, the behavior isn't reproducible after a restart of Lightroom.
Before restarting I had reproducibly the following effect:
I copy the settings of one picture pressing ctrl alt shift + c, I accept the dialog by pressing enter. then the focus changed into the keyword field. (the same happened when I pressed the button using the mouse!)
Normally the focus soesn't go anywhere.

I have this problem occasionally - drives me crazy, and mucks with plugins that use keystroke emission to accomplish their goal. - I just had it happen again: focus kept returning to library filter text box - last time it was the keyword entry box.

Just had it happen again: this time the filename field.

I had previously been editing the filename field, but had closed it out.

I invoked a plugin, and after dismissing the first dialog box, filename field is open for edit again - this is NOT proper behavior.

This is a problem!

The ONLY thing I did between these two screenshots, is click the 'Cancel' button:

Before:


After canceling:

I just got this very irritating behavior again:
after deleting an image (please don't mind the German dialogs):


the focus jumps into the keyword field:


This effect absolutely interrupts a workflow!!!

This problem is not fixed and I'm using Lightroom CC 2015.4.

I have a long list of Keywords in "Keyword List". Whenever I click a keyword that is further down the list to, one forbid, select it, the focus jump to the filter box. I need to scroll back down again to finally selecting by, wait for it... clicking.

The issue isn't solved at least for the following scenario:
being in the development module and pressing Ctrl Shift C and quitting the dialog via Enter you cannot move to the next image with the arrow keys any more!
As this situation often happens in my workflow this really drives me crazy!
