Bizarre terminal behavior

Greetings all,



Tonight I opened a terminal session and used [ctrl]+r to search a prior command. When I keyed the first letter, the terminal window was filled with the characters below. I had to [ctrl]+c to return to normal usage. Any thoughts?




Oh, 10.4, on an asus netbook



Here is the characters copied and pasted from the terminal window:

Bizarre terminal behavior
 
Greetings all,

Tonight I opened a terminal session and used [ctrl]+r to search a prior
command. When I keyed the first letter, the terminal window was filled
with the characters below. I had to [ctrl]+c to return to normal usage.
Any thoughts?
