Is the "PC" running Windows?
Some installations of Windows use the backquote character as a special
"accent character", which adds a grave accent "`" mark above the next
character typed. If you hit the backquote key and then quickly SPACE,
a single backquote is then sent to the application (and to FreeBSD,
through the SSH connection).
