As you mentioned, Your issue has already been reported here Lightroom: Rating change filtered autoadvance issue in Publish service | Photoshop Family Customer Community and our Engineers are looking into it.
Rikk Flohr was unable to reproduce the problem in that thread and there was no acknowledgement from Adobe that they were aware of a problem. I did NOT try to duplicate the problem.
I am going to try to post a video showing the problem in the next day or so.
As I indicated above I can reproduce the problem on 2 computers with different catalogs and using different versions of Lightroom.
And have reset preferences with no effect.
It would be a good idea to post the video on your original thread from 3 years ago too and reply DIRECTLY to Rikk Flohr. I am almost sure Adobe is not working on this problem if it is a bug. They don't even fix problems they acknowledge and this one wasn't acknowledged.
Rikk Flohr acknowledged this as a bug on the feedback site.
