 I use a shortcode with a hyphen in my plugin and it works just fine.

 The only thing that breaks it, if I register a shortcode that is just the
 part until the hyphen before registering the hyphened shortcode.

 In my plugin:
 add_shortcode( 'table-info', ...)
 add_shortcode( 'table', ...)
 works fine, while
 add_shortcode( 'table', ...)
 add_shortcode( 'table-info', ...)
 does not (well I admit I haven't tested again with WP 2.9 which has a new
 regex, if I remember correctly.

 So, could you check that in your case you (nor any other plugin) is
 registering a shortcode [contact /]?
