In any Writer document, hit ^f to search. Search bar has a MatchCase option with M underlined but ineffective: ~m does nothing; only a mouse click toggles it.

Confirmed on Windows 10 Ent 64-bit en-US (1803) with

IIUC the checkbox widget comes from the <Ctr>+H Find&Replace dialog, there the widget correctly responds to its accelerator. So, guess the the issue is difference in checkbox controls between dialog and toolbar instances.

The <Tab> to position, and <Space> to select the checkbox works--so not locked out of the tool.

Apparently Match Case widget in the Find Bar is an odd tb control (ref 114557).

‘M’ is no longer underlined in the Search bar MatchCase option.
So, the bug has disappeared, but so has the shortcut.
