Yes I'm affected all the time by this. It used to be a quick succession of button presses to delete show after you are done watching. Now, half the time I go through the usual muscle memory sequence my button presses are ignored until the dialog becomes functional and responsive to button presses.
I should try and re-train myself to use following sequence to delete a show I just finished watching instead to avoid the above issue completely (and as a bonus skip the annoying commercial):
Pause, Left, Clear
Using Pause before Left prevents the "keep or delete" dialog from showing up at all.
Since above sequence uses Pause and I have SPSPS enabled I still get a brief instant of a Pause ad, so it's not perfect, but better.
