Now that you have a workaround, you probably want to find out what
causes this in the first place and the way to correct it in your
particular context. My guess is that there is a mismatch between your
keyboard map and your expectations - where you want the key marked "Alt"
on the right of your keyboard to be "Alt" and not "AltGr".
