Apparently, in Windows XP, when the number 4 on your keyboard is depressed, it is impossible to simultaneously enter the letter "T". When I inserted my completed absentee ballot (for local school board) into the slot above my keyboard, it accidentally depressed the 4 key. Later I happened to remove it, and the T worked fine again. Clearly, this is a feature, not a bug.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Press (and hold down) the 4 key
2) Press Shift (while still pressing 4)
3) Hold both those keys down for the duration of the remaining steps.
4) Press and release T. Nothing should be typed
5) Press and release any other letter. A capital version of that letter is typed.

Typical Windows XP. Even its bugs have bugs, which cause things to occasionally work normally.
