How did that happen?

I just had emacs getting into this strange state: Everything seemed
normal, except for one little thing: The cursor would jump to the
beginning of the line after I inserted any character. This happened
everywhere, including in the minibuffer.

Needless to say, this made emacs difficult to use to say the least.
The only thing I could think of checking was if something had gotten
into after-change-functions, but its value was as expected:
(mew-draft-dynamic-highlight t), global value nil. (What fun to type
stuff like C-h v -retfa C-e -ahc C-e nuf TAB in order to investigate!)

Unfortunately, I haven't the faintest idea how to trigger this
behaviour, or I would submit a bug report right away.

Does anyone here have any notion what could possibly trigger this
behaviour? Or suggestions for what I might try, should I encounter it
again? I had to terminate that instance – it is just too painful to
run two instances of emacs simultaneously, or I might have kept it
around so I could investigate it some more.

PS. Sorry if posting to this list is inappropriate, but I suspect this
is too esoteric to fit on help-gnu-emacs. Correct me if I'm wrong.
