I noticed a buggy behaviour when trying to insert a special character via a f.e. shortcut "Alt+0235" to get 'ë' in the text.
This character is not placed on the cursor-position, but way down at the bottom of the file.

Confirmed. It does this when num lock is off. When num lock is on, the character inserts in the right place. The insertion with num lock off is very erratic, and extra spaces may also be thrown in freely.

Word wrap doesn't make any difference, or a couple of other variables I checked.

Thanks for the workaround.
And you're right about the unpredictable number of extra spaces added.
Nice you checked, because I thought about variations like word wrap to test this behaviour too.

When NumLock is off, you are pressing Alt+Down, Alt+PageDown and so on. Alt key is used to navigate, select text in column mode.

I see. I never paid much attention to the NumLock. From now on I will do.
