Hmm, you're not the first one I've seen reporting that. Which version of Opera, on which platform, are you using, and how are you searching (web page, using a shortcut search, search field in URL bar, search field in personal bar, etc)?
I'd recommend you file a bug report [opera.com] about it, stating the exact circumstances where it occur.

I'm using Windows 2K Pro and Opera 6.03. It's like certain strings are being converted and concatenated:0) No clue.

I'd need to see more than that. I've not run into anything like that. The only thing I could think of is maybe you have an encoding on? Try resetting it to automatic detection (under View -> Encoding)

That's what it's on...it's a real pain.

Is it a laptop? If so, double check the number lock isn't on. It took me ages to wonder why when I pressed 'p' the computer put a '9' in.

Show me a url that does it.

It happens when I type into Search Results (for example):
Finding + rental + deliver
Will search, but actually search for:
Finding + rental + de164

What search engine?
| 5:50 pm on Oct 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Yahoo! No problem in Google.

Type in "google forum" into the yahoo search box, and this is what I got back:

I use Opera a fair bit and have never noticed this before (probably because I never use Yahoo), but trying it now I'm getting the same results as madcat. The example search for: "microsoft outlook troubleshooting" is turned into "microsoft outlook trouble16a" and others do a similar thing. No problem with the search for "google forum" though. I'm also using Windows 2000 and Opera 6.03.

WIN2000 , Opera 6.05

Ok, I see it too.
It is only Yahoo where it happens?
| 5:23 am on Oct 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
It appears to only occur when a plus is inserted between search terms. (Using yahoo home page, win2k, opera 6.05) (fine in other browsers, fine if no pluses)
| 4:59 pm on Oct 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Plus or not for me. I haven't tried other engines yet.

It even has the Opera techs stumped [groups.google.com] for now.
