This sometimes negates the second letter if certain settings are in place in Keyboard Accessibilities. Bounce Key or Bouncy Key. I forgot what it was called.
stuart@mint-debian ~ $ ls -lsa /home/

4 drwxr-xr-x 24 stuart stuart 4096 Dec 29 12:08 stuart
To me it looked like he was trying to log in to a user that did not exist because terminal told him that user stuart was not to be found.
