Seems like a classic case of bad aim. A scribe burning the midnight oil?

Subject: [b-hebrew] Miqdash

Dear all,

In all of the places in which the word "Miqdash" (temple, sanctuary)
appears, there is a dagesh on the dalet. Only in Ex. 15:17, the dagesh is on
the qoph. This is consistent in all of the editions that I have checked,
including BHS. Anyone have any idea why?
