entering X BS Y combines X and Y
to a single, special character.
eg a BS " gives you an ä .

see ":help digraphs".
use ":set nodigraph"
to make it go away.

you can still use CTRL-K in insert mode
to combine the following two characters
to a single special one, eg
CTRL-K o / results in an ø - try it!
