osx (10.12.2) - Text Input automatically capitalizing

Ok weird behavior. I just upgraded to 10.12.2.  This script worked just fine on 10.11.5 but it's behaving oddly.

issue:
- typing Sr results in SR when using the keystroke AppleScript on every app.
- you can change "BBEdit" to anything "Microsoft Word", "Terminal" etc..  this is system wide across.
- instead of typing Sr it types SR

Has something changed?

Code:

Applescript:


set passCode to "Sr"

tell application "System Events"
   activate application "BBEdit"
   keystroke passCode
   keystroke return
end tell

This odd behavior is described in :

You will find a workaround in the same thread.

Thanks a lot Yvan Koenig.. it was driving me nuts. I was like damn every time i upgrade OS X now there is some then that breaks or is broken. IT's like windows all over again.

Honestly, I never got so many oddities (with 10.12.2) since April 2011 when I started to beta test OS X.
