If not using Vim key bindings, entering `#`s for headings not working, renders keyboard unresponsive

Steps to reproduce

Type # for a heading, anywhere on the page.
This occurs if attempting to add an additional # to an existing heading, or creating a new heading.

Expected result


Actual result

No result. Keyboard stops responding, can only navigate using → or <-, but not ↑ or ↓

Additional information

The only solution I’ve found, is to use Vim key bindings.
I removed all third-party plugins and am using the default theme.
