Xterm and RXVT derivatives both show this, with RXVT derivative seeming
to be easier to trigger it in from my highly unscientific memories.
RXVT probably shows it too, but I never used that.
I solve it by:
$ echo [ESC]c
This seems to reset the terminal. The [ESC] needs to be a literal
escape. If in "vi" mode, that's:
$ echo ^V[ESC]c
