    I've been testing some bugs. Perhaps someone could test one for me so that I can confirm it. Follow these steps while playing Civ 5:

    1. Open the Civilopedia.
    2. In the Search box type maitenance (the misspelling is deliberate).
    3. Use the left arrow key to move the cursor back to between the "i" and the "t".
    4. Type the letter "n".

    At this point some seemingly random text appears at the end of the word you typed. It can't be deleted. The search button may or not work. Sometimes exiting the Civilopedia fixes the problem. Other times I've had to exit Civ 5 and restart. The problem occurs anytime I've typed something in the Search box and then use the left arrow key to edit. The word in step 2 was just for the sake of providing definite instructions. Thanks.

    Confirmed here. I spotted this once before myself. In my case it appends "alog Mixer, Heavy Melody" to the end of maintenance, and searches for all that.

    I can confirm some random text is being added when following Petek's steps,
    but if you press the spacebar a few times and then use backspace you'll able
    to delete everything you've typed.
    This also causes wrong positioning of the cursor when adding or deleting new text.

    Pressing too many times the spacebar, after the four steps, will crash civ5.

    I don't remember the exact steps but I've seen that happen in the save filename box.
