Lightroom 5.6 Upgrage Keyword Bug

Since upgrading from LR 5.4 to 5.5 and then 5.6 I have a repeatable keywording bug. I noticed a problem with keywording with 5.5 and quickly upgraded to 5.6 thinking that would fix the problem. It hasn't.

I use keywording to create smart collections for my workflow. After working with a couple of photos, all of a sudden, when I click a keyword in the keyword set for 1 photo only, LR puts the keyword on 3 photos. When I click the keyword again to remove it from the 1 photo, it does remove it from the other two as well, however, now the keywords on all of my other (1000's) photos in LR do not show. They do no show in the keyword tags box, nor do they show as ticked in th keyword list.

The key words are still on my photos as all of my smart collections still show the correct count and correct photos.

The only way I can fix this is to quit LR and restart it. This is a bit of a pain to do several times in a hour depending on the number of photos I'm keywording.

I'm using LR 5.6 on a Dell tower running Windows 7 64-bit.

Many thanks in advance
