I have the same problem. I don’t know how to fix it.

I have a similar problem with Japanese input- a temporary fix that I have found is to disable rich text features from the preferences menu- this solves the problem of buggy input but obviously does not allow for rich text features so I hope that this bug is fixed soon…
