[Shift + ←] causes wrong visuals on notes.

Not sure what the title should be (or what causes the bug), so I just went for the one you can see right now.

What I did / how you can reproduce this:
1. Create the score shown in the fist picture:
2. Click on the last note
3. Click [N] to enter some special mode
4. Click [Shift + ←]
5. The Measure should now look like the one shown in the second picture:

As far as I'm aware, the second measure now is longer than 4/4 because the last note turned into a quarter note and nothing else changed. However:
1. There's no floating "+" icon that shows me that the measure's too long
2. The rhythm still sounds identical.

What is happening? Does this high quarter note mean something different?
EDIT: This also works with a measure as simple as this one:

If the functionality is to move the selected note one position over (if the next note has the same duration), that's what should happen, without weird visual bugs.
The new last note should still be marked as the thing it is, in this example an eighth. The bug is that, as you can see in the screenshots, the last note currently gets turned into a quarter note though.

Why is it expected? See shortcuts shift+left arrow & shift + right arrow. In note entry mode they move the last-entered note left or right. That is such annoying behaviour, making it too easy to move noted by accident, that I have cleared those shortcut assignments.

I'm mostly keyboard oriented but I'm comfortable with the mouse as well. My computer experience started with an Apple II in High School. They had done away with the room sized computer with reel to reel and punch cards only 2 years before I took my computer class.
