QgsCollapsibleGroupBox - QtEditor - Editing of child widgets fails when box is collapsed

In the Qt Editor, I add a QgsCollapsibleGrouBox and then add any kind of child widget into the box. Now I set the group box on collapsed state and select the child widget in the object list. When I try to edit the widget's settings (e.g. rename it), after every keyboard input the main form (dockwidget, dialog, mainwindow) gets focus and I have to re-navigate to the widget to proceed editing.

For default Qt widgets that can hide their child widgets (QTabwidget, QStackedWidget), the editor unhides the child widget when I start editing them. The behavior described above seems to affect QGIS custom widgets only, that's why I file my bug report here.
