 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...
