When I'm typing in a text field or in the address bar, the expected behaviour of command-delete is to delete everything from the cursor's current position to the beginning of the text field, while retaining everything that was after the current position.

Instead, I am seeing a behaviour where the entire input field gets cleared. Interestingly, I am not seeing this in this form submission. I've noticed it in text fields on google, the address bar, and search tools on various websites.
