  • Combining Cyrillic Millions Symbol ( ҉ ) causing console commands do be executed.

    So, today I changed my steam nickname to something close to " ҉ N ҉ E ҉ W ҉ " only to notice, as soon as I'd opened Dota 2, the following messages on the console:

    "Unknown command "N""
    "Unknown command "E""
    "Unknown command "W""
    I found that quite intriguing and so changed my nickname to " ҉echo aaa" and, as soon as the console popped up, there was the "aaa" message written as echo on the console. I also tried with " ҉quit" as a nickname and, as expected, the game would close as soon as the console could open.

    Not knowing whether this is a bug or not, here I am. I've also tried it with other source games but had no results.

      I'm posting this more as a curiosity than as an issue.
