sorry, I was meaning to get back to you on your last mail, but it
apparently got buried below the piles of other new messages...
Anyway, I've been using Tw on Ubuntu for quite some time, and so far
haven't experienced such problems. A few general questions:
 * In one of your last mails, you wrote you're using Tw r.466 - is there
a particular reason you haven't updated to r671? Does it still occur
with r671?
 * Do you have any special keyboard setup/layout/...?
 * From your message's subject, I guess this happens with keyboard
 * Does it happen when using menu commands?
 * Does it happen when pasting selected text using the middle mouse button?
 * Does it happen with all applications/data?


PS re. scripting: this may seem marginal to you, but it has been a
fairly large focus since 0.2. As such, a lot of questions arise, which
generally are relatively easy to answer ;).
