Hello guys,

I found out that using the letter T in a chat sentence will restart the chatline like you have not started typing yet. The key t and shift T will still start the chatinterface.

Also at the start of a chatline you can't start with the T as it will not accept it and remain a blank line. Opening console and typing Say T will change the letter input from the console to a newly opened chatline at the bottom of the screen.

I have encountered this problem on the following builds: r25863 and r25930. tested the later by localhosting a multiplayer game and trying to chat.

Maybe related to the subject: whenever I open and close console it will input a character that is used to open console. So when I open console with the § key on my macbook and close it again it has inputted § in the console.(just character no enter to apply the console command) Same applies to the `key. (osx has 2 ways to open console)

Yes this is only OSX related and present in the tested nighties. 1.3.2 has no such issue.

OSX 10.7.5
This task depends upon

This seems to fix it, it removes the shift and alt modifiers when checking if the key is between A-Z and 0-9
