Arrow keys aren't working in search box in Preferences

In Preferences I typed a word into the search box, and the arrow keys aren't working - they don't move the cursor. They usually work, not sure why they aren't at the moment.

 

It's not my keyboard; they're working just fine as I enter this topic. The arrow keys do work in the dialog box - when I select one of the items in the list the up/down keys move the selection; also, when I click on keyboard shortcuts in the category list on the left the arrow keys work to move the selection. I exited the dialog box and came back in and same problem. I can type and do backspace, but left & right, shift+ or ctrl+shift+ left and right don't work. Oddly, ctrl+ left & right do work, I can move the cursor one word at a time. 

 

I tried both arrow keys and the numpad arrow keys (num lock off). 

 

I find the preferences dialog box in general pretty buggy. Many times parts of the display blank out or go into disco/flashing mode. It's odd. 

 

Happy to help fix this if there's anything I can do on my end.

 

Cheers!

In both 13.1.1 and 13.1.2b1

 

In the search box in Preferences left/right arrow keys, home/end, ctrl+ home/end, and ctrl+shift home/end all do not move the cursor. Those keys don't work. Those keys work if I select somewhere else in the dialog box. 

 

Ctrl+ left & right arrows do work, as does Ctrl+Shift+ left & right arrows. 

 

Weird. Loose nut behind the keyboard?

 

Cheers
