Unfortunately, that's a consequence of the programming GUI toolkit being used. A quick check of the Bug Tracker doesn't show this as a reported problem.

I've often wished that the toolkit-independent nature of LyX had been preserved and expanded upon w/ natively-interfaced versions of it being available for Mac OS X and Windows.

I've subscribed to the LyX-devel list again and have sent this message to that list where hopefully it will spark some discussion.
