Player Control and focus

I’m seeing:

LC 6: click on a player control to give it focus and the keyboard spacebar pauses and resumes the player.

LC 8.1.2 rc2: click on a player to give it focus and the keyboard spacebar pauses and resumes the player, the left arrow key moves the playhead backwards, and the right arrow key tries to move it forward.

Is there a property that turns this behavior off and on?

This behavior is a challenge when I want the spacebar to pause/resume, but the arrow keys to navigate cards.

These are all standard interface conventions, but the implementation in LC 8 seems, well, undocumented.
