Marking cleared transactions--irritating bug

This has been present since at least Moneydance 2015 and exists in 2017.6 (Linux).
If I enter a transaction, and then select the entry and mark it Cleared (right-click, select "Cleared"), the entire entry is blanked and set to $0.00.
If I select more than one transaction to clear, no problem.
If I hit the "Clear" entry before completing the entry, no problem.
Only happens if I enter the transaction and then try to clear the last one. I believe if I close Moneydance and reopen it, I cal clear the transaction OK. Since I'm aware of the bug I avoid it, but it seems to me this is an undesirable behavior (yeah, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Then don't do that.").

    I can confirm the same sort of thing happens when using windows. After hitting Enter with the transaction line still highlighted clicking right mouse button and selecting “Mark as Cleared” results in all data for that transaction being lost. Currently using 2017.7(1661).
