Symptoms are exactly as described, and can be replicated and corrected, by
using Daniel and Gonzalo's theory.

Alt key also works as described in Walter's Post, I never knew that feature!

I will monitor to see that is the sole cause.  I certainly did not
intentionally enter anything into the search field, but to borrow from our
internal help-desk notes, the problem may very well be another "IFK" issue;
yep, defect is within the person sitting 'in front of keyboard' :-)

Thanks for the quick responses.
