It means you are inserting the # character and not the page number. It
is a problem on various keyboard layouts. The best suggestion is choose
your favourite unused F key, eg F7 and reprogram the pagenumber insert
code to be that instead. 

Depending on your version, ie if its current CVS, go into
Settings->Keyboard Shortcuts..., or if its an old CVS or 1.1.6 or lower
then go into Edit->Preferences->General->Keyboard Shortcuts...
