Lightroom 4.3: Library text filter does not always refresh correctly after adding synonym.

When the library text filter is active, and synonyms are changed for the selected image in the "edit keyword tag" dialog, the filter sometimes does not seem to refresh. E.g....
- it still shows hits for synoyms that no longer exist
- it does not show hits for newly entered or renamed synonyms
...even if new filter texts are entered in the search text box.

Only a re-start of LR seems to fix this. After a re-start, the filter shows the correct images.

This behaviour is not always reproducable. It seems to depend on whether the text filter was active before the synonym change and whether or not it was actually containing a filter text. I will try to provide step-by-step instructions how to reproduce it once I find out how to do it :-)

P.S. The "Keywording" section in mode "Will Export" also does not refresh the exported synonyms in this situation. However, it refreshes when changing the selection.
