Yes, Ron is right.  My mistake thinking that Gnome Terminal (2.14.0)
was xterm.  Xterm does not exhibit this problem.

Curiously, trying this again today with Gnome Terminal, I did not
see the problem.  When the problem DOES NOT occur on Gnome Terminal,
I see the lower right cursor location numbers.  When I don't see
these numbers is when the remnants remain.

I'll keep trying to track down this problem's cause.
