I have no idea why this happens. I have not been able to fix the underlying issue, but .. do you have photoshop open?
It turns out photoshop interrupts the alt+number keys globally, so even if you have putty open, changing windows with alt+<number key> won’t work. Closing photoshop makes everything work again.

Such a weird situation. And Google saves me.
can’t believe it was so simple. thanks man!
Oh man is this satisfying to find the answer to. It’s been so extremely frustratingly random .
Turns out it’s just very random occasions I keep photoshop and irssi+putty open at the same time.
