Thank you for contacting us.
Please note that our dev team is still in researching process for the mentioned problematic behaviour. It appears that this fix is more complicated than expected and could cause some braking changes in the control's behaviour. Therefore our developers are still discussing if the fix will be possible and if yes what would be the best way for its implementation with minor breaking changes for the input.
We will let you know what the stage of this task is as soon as our dev team come to a final conclusion for this item.
Thank you for your patience and excuse us for any inconvenience this problem may lead.
All the best,
the Telerik team
