I'm running Mountain Lion but I had the same issues with Lion. Say I open a new document, I press 't' for text, write some text, hit ctrl+enter and hit 'v' back to the pointer. Then if I hit 't' again, nothing happens.

The usual ones, I guess ...

Boilerplate-text:
Are Photoshop and OS fully updated?
As with all unexplainable Photoshop-problems you might try trashing the prefs (after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed) by keeping command-alt-shift pressed on starting the program or starting from a new user-account.
System Maintenance (repairing permissions, purging PRAM, running cron-scripts, cleaning caches, etc.) might also be beneficial, Onyx has been recommended for such tasks.

Weeding out bad fonts never seems to be a bad idea, either. (Validate your fonts in Font Book and remove the bad ones.)

If 3rd party plug-ins are installed try disabling them to verify if one of those may be responsible for the problem.

So...

Are Photoshop and OS fully updated?
- Yep
As with all unexplainable Photoshop-problems you might try trashing the prefs (after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed) by keeping command-alt-shift pressed on starting the program or starting from a new user-account.
- Done
System Maintenance (repairing permissions, purging PRAM, running cron-scripts, cleaning caches, etc.) might also be beneficial, Onyx has been recommended for such tasks.
- Done, Onyx is the best!
Weeding out bad fonts never seems to be a bad idea, either. (Validate your fonts in Font Book and remove the bad ones.)
- I use FontExplorerX Pro and have removed/disabled corrupt ones
If 3rd party plug-ins are installed try disabling them to verify if one of those may be responsible for the problem.
- None are installed except for the FontExplorerX Pro one I installed after starting this thread.

This is the proper place for bug reporting as far as I know.
The other site is a user to user Forum, though thankfully with Adobe employees often contributing, too.

You mean feedback.photoshop.com is the _proper_ place or the Adobe forum?

feedback.photoshop.com is (at least that’s my understanding), one also gets directed here from the Feature Request/Bug Report Form when one choses Photoshop.
