I was able to confirm it (using Katakana) in Chrome on MacOS. Apparently it depends on the speed of typing (Selenium test for it is going to be interesting).

Only works if the line has no text.
Confirmed on bullet-type lines too.

Just as a note, we are refactoring the Surface code in ContentEditable to make this fixable, hence the delay.
