How to turn off a desktop feature


I'm having problems with 10.2, I have gotten into this 'mode' or something where my a,b,c,d,e,f and the numbers above the chars have become strange, when I push them they appear like in this picture, and I cant seem to find anywhere to turn this thing off, if I push same button three times, that meny comes up, but nowhere to disable it, no icon or anything, I've tried alot of keyboard combinations and no luck, hoping that anyone might know what it is...

You described your problem very very poorly in words. Fortunately, that picture is worth a thousand more words.
Does this problem happen when you're using other programs?
If not, what xterminal program are you using? (aterm?)

Yeah, I second that, my words are not what they used to be, I think I found the 'virus' beeing an applcation called SCIM.

Things seems to work now, and I'm darn glad, cause this has been two fruity days!
