Command + Backspace (Mac)

I'm using Pycharm CE on OSX, and the Cmd+Backspace behaviour is really strange: It does some kind of combination of "delete to beginning of line" and "delete line", which seems to vary depending on the context. Sometimes it deletes two lines at once.

How can I configure Pycharm to have the default Mac-like behaviour of Cmd+Backspace?

I found this heavily infuriating, too, since it differs from the usual Mac behavior of deleting to the beginning of the line. You can override the default behavior by going into Settings > Keymap > Editor Actions > Delete to Line Start, and setting the command + backspace key as the shortcut (clicking 'yes' to override the previous default behavior).
