Ctrl-4 applies too many condition formats


We use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl-4, Ctrl-5, and Ctrl-6 to add, subtract,
or eliminate condition formats from the current content selection.  On a
couple of occasions I find that instead of adding just the SINGLE condition
format selected in the status bar, Ctrl-4 adds ALL the condition formats in
the catalogue.

When you consider that some of our documents are VERY heavily conditioned,
this is scary, because adding the entire catalogue obliterates whatever
combination of condition formats were there before.  For example, it took
me four hours one weekend to restore one chapter to its former state.
(Unfortunately, starting from a previous version ex the version repository
was not an option as the file had also had many content edits.)

Has anybody else experienced this bug?  As I am generally working at speed,
I have not always noticed the problem immediately it has occurred.  I have
tried to reproduce it but cannot nail down the precise conditions [pun!]
that forces this bug.
