Rust Analyzer AltGr key jumps back one char

Using recent VS code [1] on Ubuntu Linux with recent rust-analyzer plug in [2] as soon as I use the AltGr key on a German keyboard the cursor jumps back one char. And with this the typing is continued one char "to early" breaking the just written string.

For example trying to type {} or \n after a string in the VS code editor results in this. For an example see the attached screen shot [3], too. This is very annoying as it needs manual correction, always.

This happens on two machines, so it doesn't seem to be a machine individual issue. I think I observed this some month ago, already. So its not specific to the recent versions I guess.

Any hint?

Just learned that this is not Rust Analyzer specific and a long known issue. For example:
