Expression Builder not allowing variables to be picked from the dynamic items list

Something seems to be broken with the Expression Builder (first, the keyboard shortcuts to open it stopped working sometime around the 17th (Jan 2022).  There is a bug report for that here:


But, I'm also seeing that I can no longer pick Dynamic Values when I am in the Expression Builder.  This feature was great for searching for variables and actions' outputs for using in my expression.  PITA to have to type in full again and again.

Note that I have Experimental Features On.


In the screenshot below, I have searched for the term "obj" (to locate a variable I want to use which is named objNewTeam).  It appears in the filtered results but when I click on it (i.e. the area circled in red which when hovered over/clicked on in real life has a "hyperlink hand" mouse cursor not captured in the screenshot), no text (i.e. "variables('objNewTeam')" ) appears in the Expression Builder.
