Turning off "BREAKIN" and using the PTT line to activate transmit mode will cause the internal keyer to send incorrectly. 

This problem was originally reported as a cwx problem but we traced it down to a ham who uses PTT to trigger the tx rather than relying on Breakin. He was sending cwx macros then activating the PTT via a switch of some kind and that caused the keyer to act up. I have verified this but using cwx is not necessary to affect the keyer. Code elements begin to drop out and sometimes key down lockups happen. 

This happened on a 6500. Version 1.4.11
