Odd problems with Alt key shortcuts in Lightroom CC

So I've been using ctl + alt + S for the last year to paste/sync the settings of my current photo to a group of the selected photos, while bypassing the the confirmation window. it's a really quick and useful tool. But ever since the Lightroom CC upgrade this shortcut breaks intermittently and won't work again until I completely restart the program.

To complicate things a bit, I use the VSCO Keys plugin on a G13 game pad for slider movement, and bind the other shortcuts I commonly use (ctl + alt + s being one of them) to the function keys on a Wacom Intuos Pro.

I have noticed that when the problem starts happening, any time I press the alt key (or use the shortcut programmed into the Wacom) the tools palette changes slightly from:


Has anybody else been running into this problem with Lightroom CC? I suspect that my VSCO/Wacom setup might be to blame. In that case, does anybody have any suggestions for fixes or workarounds?

FWIW, I know my key setup seems a little over-the-top, but it's pretty essential because my workflow requires keyboard controlled slider movement, and the Wacom takes up so much of my desk space.
