When I (or the other people I asked) run it I, I get a few "as" as output,
and thats it.

In any case, I doubt very much that this is something in urxvt - are you,
by chance, running gentoo, some experimental unstable x release, buggy
xtest extensionor another program (e.g. buggy input method) that might
cause this?

Especially when you see reordered keyboard input the cause would almost by
guarantee be something else (kernel bug, x bug), as urxvt handles events
in the order it receives them.
