Apparently the key to the problem occuring is using something other than "*"
to switch layers.

>From Altium (Protel support):
----------------------------
...I was able to duplicate your actions and results.  It appears that it is
happening in every Interactive Routing Mode (Ignore, Push and Avoid
Obstacle) and in all Angle Modes.  I am preparing a report for the
development team right now.  I hope to have information back from them soon
and I will forward it right over.

I also did note that setting up the shortcut key 0 the same as the * is in
the program did not automatically place the via.  In addition, even with the
new 0 key set up, the * key still works in the default manner.  I think your
summation that it is some type of internally controlled action seems
correct.  I will try to find out if there is a way to set this customized
short-cut up so it works identically to the program defaults.
----------------------------

BTW, a member of the Protel support staff took the initiative and contacted
me after seeing my post to the list, and worked to recreate & document the
problem.  I'm impressed!

<snip> if I have "automatically remove loops" checked, when I finish
manually
routing a net (right-clicking once), any vias I put down in the process are
deleted!  If I turn OFF loop removal, the vias remain...<snip> I place the
vias by
doing P,V,left-click,right-click.
