It is because of this:

[Trace] 11:48:32: (keyevent) Key press event: keysym = 65506
[Trace] 11:48:32: (keyevent)    -> wxKeyCode 306
[Debug] 11:48:32: UnicodeValue from keypress event = ffe2
[Debug] 11:48:32: inserting Unicode char ffe2

The text tool gets a keypress event with UnicodeValue=ffe2 and it then 
duly inserts this character into the text object. This does not always 
happen. When I just tried again with Shift, I could not reproduce it, 
but it always happens for Ctrl here, which inserts ffe4.
