If mouse events are enabled, quickly double tapping a direction will deselect the current button.  This is not just a visual glitch, as the submit button won't do anything in this state.  The position is still remembered though as you can recover by pressing a direction again to select an adjacent button.  It's easiest to see this in menus that only let you move on one axis (eg. double tapping left or right on a vertical menu) but it still happens even if the direction you're tapping is changing selections at the same time.

When you have key navigation, you should ideally turn off other forms of input. If you engage another form of input, such as touch or mouse, that effectively hides the key-based navigation. It's the expected behaviour.

The issue isn't caused by engaging other forms of input.  The current button is deselected when a directional button on the keyboard is quickly pressed twice.  Surely it's not expected behavior for keyboard input to hide key based navigation?
