Unfortunately, yes. One has to do `tset -Qs -` to make tset not
send the term init sequences. You can check this by running both
command variants under script.

If that tset command is in /etc/csh.login, then all (login-shell) uses of
csh would show this issue--provided `-oxtabs' is _also_ set. In some
instances it is not, and that would also account for why some folks see
this issue and others do not.
And, since this tab-setting stuff is an xterm feature, once set, will
propagate to affect other command run in that session--sh for instance
will appear to suffer this issue as well even when its .rc scripts are
not running tset at all.
Hope this helps...
