07: Prompted Find only takes single characters

I have a window containing many fields. The first two are subject to 
a prompted find. I've been using this window for years and it always 
worked fine. Now for some spurious reason I can only enter single 
characters in this field during a Prompted Find.  eg If I type "L37" 
in the field, "L", then "3" then "7" is displayed and when I hit OK 
the find looks for "7" instead of "L37". Surprisingly I can paste 
"L37" into the field and it works correctly. The problem seems 
related to typing in the field.
Any clues on what might be causing this behaviour?

Cheers, Andrew Pavey
