That fixed it here. I noticed this problem a few months ago, but never

clear_console with a call to reset and the problem went away. I shut
down my dfaughter's X session and logged her out. My X session on vt01
is still up and running.

That program is shipped as part of bash, so it looks as if this might
actually be considered a bash bug. I'd see about reporting it there, yes

Definitely not upstream.

I'd never even heard of it until now. It's definitely a Debian add-on.
Thanks. I hadn't considered checking that way, but it's good to have

It uses reset, and I often type reset myself, at times like
when the ssh pipe breaks during emacs -nw which throws you back
to a local bash prompt but with no visible cursor and a broken
command history recall.
Thanks for the tip, David.
