Thank you for these several responses to my imprecise trouble report.

I have used tmux, recently; and this might have happened.  This does not
explain the many instances  long before i started using it.

I am running i3 Manjaro GNU/Linux and have been for over two years.  For a
time i used the st terminal emulator, and urxvt, mostly recently.  Perhaps
experiments along this line would be suggested.   I sure hope i3 has not
been involved.

I appreciate these responses.
