Lightroom 5.6 - Keywording UI problem in Smart Collection that uses "keywords are empty" as criteria

When adding keywords from the "Keyword Suggestions" box, the keyword can get stuck highlighted even when the image is deselected.

To reproduce:

1) Create a Smart Collection with the rule "Keywords" "are empty"
2) Navigate to the new collection in grid view
3) Select a photo
4) Click on a keyword in the "Keyword Suggestions" box (usually the first one in the top-left spot works
Result: If the keywords in the list do not change order, they keyword selected will remain highlighted, even thought the image will have disappeared from the Smart Selection and is deselected as a result. The keyword remains selected until you navigate away such that the keyword list changes. Or...
5) Select another photo and, assuming the list doesn't change, click the same keyword. This time, it is not applied, but rather it becomes deselected - I assume the logic to remove the keyword is executed (which of course has no effect on the selected photo as it did not actually have the keyword).
