Yes, this is a patch for this bad behaviour.
The applyMode = 'auto' or = 'change' is now deprecated, I always use applyMode = 'enter', adding also an "apply button" to my grid toolbar.
You can also use the filter configuration attribute "applyFilterEvent" to select the field event that applies filter. At the moment this feature is a little bit restrictive because you can specify only one event listener and it replaces any other listener specified in filter field config. That could be improved in future versions.
