Keyboard Shortcuts Work Inconsistently

I'm in the Library module of Lightroom Classic. I press the keyboard combination CTRL+U, which is supposed to apply Auto adjustments. Instead, it opens an Export window. In the Develop module, the shortcut works fine. But when I switch back to Library, it goes haywire again. This happens with other shortcuts too, such as CTRL+SHIFT+R which is supposed to reset all adjustments.

In case it was an issue with my Logitech wireless keyboard, I plugged in a Microsoft USB keyboard. The same thing happens. So, it's not he keyboard.

The only solution is to restart Lightroom. Then, the shortcut works fine for quite a while until, for no apparent reason, it stops working again. I've reset my preferences, but the problem still eventually returns.

Does anyone else experience this strange behavior?
