The change in behavior was intended. Thanks to Tor Arne Vestbø for the
explanation (see the bug report for details). One of our developers has
come up with a fix that works on Linux/Mac/Win [1] and had the following
comments regarding potential improvements to the documentation:

  I find that https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qkeyevent.html#details
  could be understandable if they added the third paragraph of
  https://codereview.qt-project.org/125142. The lacking documentation
  probably explains this problem.
