Default [5.79] UX regression for keyboard users in Item Properties window (FIXED)


From the change log for 5.79:
+ Keyboard: pass through spacebar in various windows to main window

Unfortunately this causes a big regression for users who navigate their OS with keystrokes for accessibility (in my case I rely entirely on the keyboard).

To reproduce:
- Open the Item Properties window
- Hit the tab key until you're focused on either a check box or a button (both are controls which would ordinarily be activated using Space)
- Hit space.

Expected behaviour: A check box should toggle, or a button should be clicked.

Behaviour in 5.79: Transport plays/stops, and the actual control is left untouched.

If there's anything you can do, there are a ton of accessibility users who would appreciate it.
