Photoshop: i18n settings issue with keyboard shortcuts (English/German setup)

The last weeks I was suffering from a very annoying issue in the latest photoshop CC classic version: All shortcuts that use the CTRL-modifier key didn't work in photoshop inside the main edit window. Most painful was, that copy&paste was simply not working...

What I found now is, that this issue is related to my (not too unusual) l18n settings in my OS (using Windows 10 btw):
As many software developers do, I use windows with the language set to "English" but everything else (Region-Settings and especially Keyboard-Layout) is set to "German". With this setup, it is not possible to CTRL+C / CTRL+V in photoshop anymore. This might be related to the fact that the english Key-Name "Control" is translated to "Steuerung" on german keyboards. This makes the label on the key "STRG" instead of "CTRL".

The worst experience I made here was that I've been left alone with no chance to file a bug or get any feedback from a developer.
