I have the caps lock key mapped to the ctrl key so when I type ALL

reinstalled this system the keyboard is acting strangely. This behavior plus certain other
letters seem to want to generate a cedilla or an accent grave or accent acute or an
umlaut. There are a few other characters that behave similarly. Coincidentally I started
getting messages about python forcing "PYTHONCOERCECLOCALE=0". Maybe this is not
related to this problem, I can't tell. Could this be a LOCALE issue?
I think SHIFT-space used to be the shortcut to change keyboard layouts.
If that's the case on your system, that would also explain the
unexpected characters. Check your keyboard layout settings and see if
there is more than one layout configured and also see if you can find
out what the layout switching shortcut is.
