Does anybody know why my Ctl-C, Ctl-V, Delete key (and possibly some other editting keystrokes have stopped working in CW MCU 10.5?)

I just did a software update of my CW MCU 10.5 this morning.

Sometime this afternoon, a number of heavily used editing keystrokes became non-functional.

Included are:  Ctl-C, Ctl-V, and Delete

Ctl-Z and Ctl-Y seem to be still functional, as are the "right-click" and select commands for copy and paste.

(In other words, the underlying cut/paste seems to  be working, but the keystrokes are not triggering the actions.)

I am NOT using any custom editor.

Other apps appear to work fine....  including this web-page    ("e....  including this web-page" an example done intentionally)

I have unplugged and re-plugged the USB keyboard.

I have shut down the machine, installed all Windows updates, and re-booted.

The problem is persisting!

This is HEAVILY counter-productive and ANNOYING.

This is suspiciously like something in the software update has clobbered something (but not, of course, conclusive)
