LR: Pressing "Right Alt + A" while typing cleares current content of the input field

Pressing "Right Alt + A" while typing cleares current content of the input field (comment, keyword, city or any other metadata field) in Lightroom.

One of Polish specific characters is "ą", which on computers with Polish Programmer's keyboard (most of computers in Poland) can be typed by clicking Right Alt + "A". When you enter some text in Polish, for instance a caption for the photo, and while writing press Right Alt + A to type "ą", the whole text type already disappears and only "ą" appears. This is very frustrating. This is the problem of this keys combination - if I type "ą" in notepad or any other text editor, copy it and paste into Lightroom field which I currently edit, nothing bad happens.

This happens in Lightroom 4 and also in Lightroom 3.

Well, it seems this problem is quote common, there are at least three other posts from Polish LR users regarding the same issue:

Is there any way to officially file this as a bug and get some response from Adobe?

Dear LR Team,

this problem appears in all Lightroom versions including LR4 (see above mentioned links and also old posts http://forums.adobe.com/message/14740... and http://forums.adobe.com/message/14717...). Since we are close to release of LR5, is there any chance that someone from Adobe will finally recognize this problem?
