Seems pervasive across the keyboard.
For example, with the Medium skin, the g key seems to misbehave--e.g., g CF executes STATUS, g RAD executes VIEW, g DEG executes CAT, g 16 displays Pi, g CLSigma, g x^2 executes matrix, g RTN executes P/R, g FILL executes CONST, g LN executes GTO...
However, in the Compact skin, the f key misbehaves--f Phi executes PROB, f SF executes STATUS, f SQRT executes MATRIX, etc.
One thing I have noticed, and I have not tested every possible key combo, is that executing the same sequence a subsequent time leads to CORRECT behaviour, eventually. For example, executing g RAD two or three times executes VIEW, but EVENTUALLY will behave correctly.
It is as though some shift key state persists in an ostensibly unpredictable way, though under the hood I bet it is eminently predictable, and it takes a few attempts for the emulator to clear it and carry out proper key behaviour.
Does this help at all?
