That's the default input method assuming that you're trying to enter an
arbitrary Unicode code point by inputting its code in hexadecimal.

By default, the option to switch to a different input method isn't
provided, but you can switch it on either by popping open gconf-editor
and find the /desktop/gnome/interface section, and then toggling on
"show_input_method_menu", or by running this from a shell:
  gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/interface/show_input_method_menu -t boolean true

Then, right-click in the terminal window and switch to something like
the "X Input Method", which doesn't provide that.

Then again, you may want to check if Ctrl+6 does what you need, as
pressing Shift may not be necessary.
