You probably hit the INSERT key - then you got the overwrite mode. Check the status bar: If overwrite mode has been chosen it will show overwrite (or similar); if regular insert mode is chosen there will be no information (LO - should also be valid for later versions...).
Hit INSERT key again and this will cure your problem... - Cheers
