This also happens in PowerShell / Windows 7 Professional.

Hitting enter after the above steps reveals that the "d" gets

Though the folk I have met,
(Ah, how soon!) they forget
When I've moved on to some other place,
There may be one or two,
When I've played and passed through,
Who'll remember my song or my face.
