Mon Aug 27 21:07:07 2012, original submission:

When invoking certain features through the default keyboard shortcut, an invisible character is inserted into the text field. This affects chat to all (option-M) and labels (option-L) and probably any features which bring up a text box that are invoked by a shortcut which can produce a character.

The character becomes visible as soon as you type another character, unless you press backspace first. It also seems that it only occurs when the key combination is a dead key in the current keyboard layout. For example, if I change from US extended where option-L is a horizontal line to overlay on various letters such as ł, to plain US where option-L represents the ¬ character, the issue no longer occurs. (It also never occurs when invoking it via the context menu.)
