Hello MathGroup:

I am not sure that this is related, but...

I think Vista & Win7 has some type of "Math input palette" thingee
where it will try to interpret math gestures (maybe like a summation
symbol)....also I think I read somewhere that Mathematica also hooks into
this...maybe they are colliding...
