    When typing characters in a windows block, the characters get out of sequence.

    Example of correct sequence: THIS IS A TEST OF MY INPUT

    Example of actual results: TIS IS A TEST OF MY INPUTH

    All characters get typed, but some get ahead of the cursor.

    Any ideas as to the cause?

    You are typing on a laptop's keyboard and do not realize that your thumb or wrist is hitting the touch pad and moving the cursor.

    No laptop. No pad close by.
