Multiple tabs to get out of template hotspots

Do other people find that, for example, the 'property type' hotspot (not sure what they're called - the bits with red borders) on a 'new property' template often needs two presses of TAB to move out of?

If I add a new property with a quickfix, the focus is on the type of the new property - once I've overtyped that with the correct type, it often takes two clicks of TAB to move onto the name of the property.  This doesn't always happen (though mostly), and I'm not sure what the circumstances are.

I think it's a general thing with hotspot fields on templates, nothing specific to new properties.

I just tried it and it works the same way with either TAB or ENTER. When I
change TYPE to say int or string and press ENTER or TAB the first time, it
acts as if it never received the keystroke.

Thanks Greg - with this sort of bug I tend to be very uncertain whether I'm actually seeing broken behaviour or if it's 'just me'.

For example, Intellisense on enum members has definitely got less functional recently, but I'd be hard-pushed to say which combinations of ctrl-shift-alt-space used to work, and which do now.  I always imagine that JB are using this software in-house and know exactly which combinations are supposed to do what and instantly file precise bugs when anything gets broken, but that doesn't really seem to be the case in reality.

Does everyone else just hack about on ctrl-shift-alt-space combinations until something useful appears?
