New discovery:

After the bug occurs in the "File open" dialog, all other dialogs also
exhibit the bug. For example, if I open the "Search and replace"
dialog (Control-F) the same keystroke bug is there.

New workaround:

After the bug occurred, I moved the "File open" dialog from the
floating layer to the managed layer. The bug went away! And the
dialog accepted my keystrokes. After this, all other dialogs (whether
in floating or managed layer) started accepting my keystrokes also.
