Virtual keyboard stops receiving keystrokes

In Cubase Elements 9 the virtual keyboard loses focus after the transport bar is toggled using F2.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Show the transport bar (F2)
  2. Enable the keyboard (Alt-K) - virtual keyboard receives qwerty keyboard input.
  3. Toggle (hide/show) the transport bar (F2) - virtual keyboard no longer receives qwerty keyboard input.

Focus is regained if the keyboard is disabled and re-enabled using Alt-K

Edit: this is on Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 with the 9.0.1 update.

The issue persists in the update.

This seems to be fixed in 9.0.20!
