I have a VB.NET application. When Texter or PhraseExpress is installed and enabled, the program behaves poorly. Debugging has revealed that at times I can press Enter in a field and no event will be fired (i.e. no breakpoints in the event handlers get hit), then I press it again, and they will be fired twice. (Basically these cycle if I keep pressing enter - one time nothing will happen, the next I get two events, the next keypress does nothing, the next triggers two events, etc.)

Since Enter is used in certain places to trigger searches, or to move between fields for fast data entry using the numeric keypad, this effectively breaks the program in these spots. The problem is highly repeatable - disabling Texter or PhraseExpress causes the program behaves perfectly normally. Enabling them again causes it to break. Note that in both text expansion programs, I have assigned NO events to the Enter key. In fact, with Texter (haven't done this particular test with PE yet), it happens even if NO replacements have been defined at all, simply based on whether Texter is enable or disabled.
