DropdownButtons keyboard navigation problems when appendTo='component'

Kendo version :

@progress/kendo-angular-buttons: 5.4.1



How to reproduce :

- Add a kendo dropdown button with some items

- Use appendTo='component' popupSetting

- Bind itemClick and close events


Stackblitz example : https://stackblitz.com/edit/kendo-dropdownbuttons-keyboardnavigation?file=app/app.component.ts


What happens :

- If you use arrows to navigate through items, is always skip one item.

- If you use enter or space to select item, the popup close and reopen immediately.

- If you prevent close as in the stackblitz example : enter and space will fire twice the itemClick event.
