Merge Books function behaviour change

I've been cleaning up my library, and have noticed a change in the merge books function since the last upgrade. I used to be able the highlight the books I want to be merged, press M, then the enter key to have the books merged. Now, with the last upgrade when I highlight the books, press M, the main program window loses focus (this is ok), the merge confirmation box gains focus, and the yes box is highlighted (this is ok), but when I press enter, the main program gains focus, (the merge box is still displayed over the main program box), and the only way for the merge to be executed is to physically click on the yes box. Previously all you had to do was press enter.
Is this behavior change intentional?
Thanks for the help.

I just wanted to update this thread, and let you know that with the latest update of Calibre, everything is back to normal. I can use enter again to get the book merge started without having to physically click on OK. Whatever was changed or recompiled, the gremlins have been vanquished.

Thanks for the great work that you and your team do and a fantastic piece of software.
