it is rather unlikely that this is a program error/intentional as
nobody else complained. Did you check your hotkey assignment in
settings? Maybe you just select the standard hotkeys again, to reset
your current ones?

Do you have enabled the function "user defined hotkeys"? In that case
you can simple press a new - less intrusive - keycombination while
poiting to the about menu.

(I just tried it, when the help menu is open
and i press u, it will be assigned with the bout menu and it will be
activated in text editor. I then reassigned it to F2 and I can type
