I also sometimes experience this. In the past, I didn't consistently see it when
running Curses.Blinkenlights. But now, based on casual observation, it
does seem to happen consistently. Sorry I can't identify when this
changed for the worse. Also, when running other UIs, such as
Noninteractive.Quiet, in the background, if Offlineimap crashes,
sometimes this also messes up the terminal in a similar way. I hadn't
reported the problem yet because I hadn't been able to pinpoint it
