#8769 Ctrl-N 'Find Class' misses keystrokes

I'm finding occasionally that when I press Ctrl-N to bring up the 'Find Class' dialog, that the first few characters of the class name are missing from the text field - and they have been entered into the currently open file in the editor... Needless to say, this is extremely annoying and potentially very damaging, especially if the current cursor position is scrolled off-screen so the insertion can't be seen, and/or the file is not a syntax-checked type.

Presumably, if you start typing the class name before the input dialog has appeared, the editor still has focus, and those characters are simply entered at the current editor cursor position. Then the dialog appears, the text field gets focus, and the rest of the name appears there.

Unfortunately, I am unable to reproduce this dangerous little oddity on demand, so it looks like it needs an unusual combination of circumstances.

Update: a colleague tells me it also happens quite often with the 'Search' dialog...

I have noticed the same problem with the Ctrl+F search bar.
