Code Actions Keyboard Shortcut splitting on Cursor Position

Problem description:
Code actions triggered with the CMD+. keyboard shortcuts is splitting on the cursor position.

For example, consider the following code (assume atom isn’t imported):

export const searchValue = atom("");

If I put my cursor between a and tom and use the CMD+. keyboard shortcut for code actions, I see something like this screenshot:

Notice how only “a” is highlighted green.

This continues with almost every other cursor position in the atom keyword.

When I move my cursor to the end, I finally see the result I’m looking for (atom is located in the jotai package)

Expected behavior:
Regardless of where my cursor is located in an un-imported keyword, Code Actions/suggestions should include the entire keyword.

Actual behavior:
Code Suggestions splits and only suggests an action with the left-hand-side of the keyword my cursor is on

Steps to reproduce:

Hey Conner - heads up, the team just did some work that should fix this up. I’m going to mark this as solved.

Thanks again for reporting and good to see you!
