I've not experienced this ever.
Maybe you are hitting a key command and not realizing it?
Maybe a key on your keyboard is physically stuck?
This happened to me once and it took awhile to figure out what the hell was happening.
I think there are key commands assigned by default for those functions.
Look in Key Commands under "Editors"
That's my best guess at this point.
