Keywords incorrectly written in Photoshop and Bridge

In both Photoshop and Bridge, keywords entered in the Basic tab of File Info are written to dc:subject but not lr:hierarchicalSubject. Keywords added in the Bridge Keyword panel are written to both namespaces.

If some keywords are added via File Info and others via Keywords panel, the two namespaces are out of sync. The File Info keywords are not appended to lr:hierarchicalSubject.

If keywords are deleted in Keywords panel, an empty lr:hierarchicalSubject tag is left behind. It is deleted if additional keywords are added via File Info.

There is also a text entry bug. For a file with no keywords, add "test, test2" in Basic and then click ok. Open File Info again, put the cursor after "test2" and press the down arrow.

I have not tested files with out of sync keywords in Lightroom.
