Following this scenario on a Windows XP version, I got the same problem 
as Bartolomé reports. In fact, I cannot type any character available 
with the 'Alt Gr' key in the Tool Attributes Panel. I have trouble to 
type some of those characters in the main view too. On the other hand, I 
can type the # character if I change the link thru the Link dialog.
I have the same problem with the 9.55 version
