Sometimes (about once/twice a day), when I open a file in vim, I get a strange line containing meta control characters right at the top of the buffer.
The line goes away when I refresh the buffer, so it's not really a problem.
I'm just curious to know why it happens. I run vim in a terminal and I'm on ubuntu 18.04.

I've used vim on various machines for many years, but my current laptop is the only one where I've seen this happen.
