I'm not certain, but I wonder if you're accidentally hitting the layout
switch key when you type '| ' quickly. Often it's mapped to shift-caps

setxkbmap -print; should tell you what your default keymap is set to and
what the possible alternates are. [There may also be an XFCE specific
way of setting this.]
