issues with VoiceOver and bluetooth keyboard in ios7

iOS and iPadOS
wondering if anyone has experienced any of the following issues when using a Bluetooth keyboard with ios7.
I am using a 5s running ios 7.0.2, but would also be interested if people have noticed this on other devices.
I have found several problems, firstly when I use a Bluetooth keyboard to enter a password I have found that if I hit two letters on the keyboard very quickly one straight after the other for example like a double press of a letter the first letter will give the click sound, but the second press will give no click sound at all.
This seems to be the case for any quickly pressed two letter combination and is quite unnerving as of course your not sure if anything happened without the second click sound.
If you press a letter an wait a second or so then press it again you get the usual click sound so it means I am slower when entering passwords so I can be sure all my key presses go through.
The second issue I have noticed is that when pressing my shift key to do a capital letter, VoiceOver always says capslock off regardless of the state of the key and doesn't report when it is on.
I have found these problems with several different keyboards now, so would be very interested to know if other people have experienced them as well.
