I can confirm this bug. In a new cell in a new notebook in a new Mathematica 5.2 session under Windows XP, I type: Print[2] I move the cursor to before that expression, pressing Enter to get a new line, and on the first line type \[Alpha] which, as expected, turns into a displayed Greek letter alpha as soon as I complete typing it -- and, at the same time, "Print" becomes "Alpha"!
