Moved to feature Requests. The lack of this particular combo isn't a bug. TBH I'd never really hard of Ctrl+backspace deleting a word before, and I've been using word processors in Windows for most of 30 years. It maybe a pretty common shortcut but it's one I've never had occasion to use. Dan or Tom either apparently, or I'm sure they would've put it in.
It's a super common keyboard combo that honestly everyone should use especially when programming. Makes it much faster when you know how to use it efficiently and IIRC even DM supports this

When writing code, I'm usually using only my keyboard, no mouse.

Hold Ctrl to operate on whole words instead of single characters. This includes deleting forwards, backwards, and moving the cursor with the arrow keys.

Speaking of moving the cursor with arrow keys, you can hold shift to select the text starting from where you started holding shift... except when moving up, as of v511:
