Unsolved Pressing ALT+CAPSLOCK when Japanese IME keyboard is active highlights QMenu items, losing focus from editor.

Hello. I'm creating a translation app that takes text from one language, and translates it to another, such as Japanese to English. With Japanese in particular I use CTRL+CAPSLOCK and ALT+CAPSLOCK to switch between hiragana and katakana respectively.
This isn't a problem in most apps. However, within my app, while the Japanese IME keyboard is active, whenever I press ALT+CAPSLOCK to switch to katakana, it also highlights the QMenu item, moving the focus away from the textbox and preventing me from typing until I either click in it again, or press alt again, which is very inconvenient when in the middle of typing a foreign language.
I haven't been able to find anything on how to disable this functionality within a python qt app for a QMainWindow object (PySide6 v6.1.2). Furthermore, I see this used to be a bug that was apparently fixed as of 5.9.0 (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-46812). I'm wondering if this is also a bug, and it wasn't taken into account when the fix was originally implemented. If it is a bug, I'm wondering if I should create a new issue for this in JIRA under QTBUG project.
Aside from that, is there any way I would be able to programmatically work around this issue within the app itself by disabling ALT? Thanks!
