Hi Andrew, 

I don't think it's odd notation as the G and B flat would be held by the
fingers while the C and F are lost by the pedal change after the first
crotchet. The A is a quaver to get your hand out of the way of the right
hand figurations.

But I'm not sure that this is what Chopin actually wrote. The 1st edition on
doesn't have the F in that stave (see screenshot below). This comment
doesn't help for the C of course. What edition are you using, Knute?
