I don't have any further details on whether or not the issue is fixed  
yet for the next 2.9 build.

I am pretty sure that non-functioning shortcut keys are related to a  
confused engine when it comes to focusedObject and selectedField. I've  
been able to recreate the issue and have filed bug reports. Rev is  
aware of the issue and hopefully all of these shortcut key woes will  
go away with 2.9.
