Putty weirding up key mappings

Hello all. I'm getting an odd problem occasionally while using putty to connect to my computer. Every so often the key mapping screws up, and the only way I can find to get them back is to close all my apps and restart putty. I'm not sure if the problem is with putty, the console, or screen (the console "windowing" application). It's quite possible this is a "feature" and I'm accidentally hitting the exact right combination to cause this.

I'm using a standard north american keyboard. I'm not sure what keyboard I'm switching *to*, but here are a few of the switches

@ becomes "
# becomes /
\ becomes <

Anyway, it's not a life or death situation, but it certainly breaks the concentration to have to shut down and restart the five apps I generally have open. If anyone knows what's up, I'd love to hear.
