But the bugfix will never arise if it's not possible to find the cause for your 

Here I'm using LyX-2.0.2 and have no user defined key bindings and set 
shortcuts to "emacs" and the checkbox "don't swap" enabled.

When typing ctrl+b LyX's key debug output is:
.../GuiApplication.cpp(1705):  Key [action=][Kontroll-B]
and the cursor is moving one character backwards.

When typing command+b I can see:
.../GuiApplication.cpp(1705):  Key [action=][Befehl-B]
.../GuiApplication.cpp(1728): isText() is true, inserting.
.../GuiApplication.cpp(1746): SelfInsert arg[`b']
and the letter "b" is inserted.

Please, check the contents of the file "$HOME/Library/Application 
Support/LyX-2.0/bind/user.bind" if it's empty.
