Both terminals I usually use (one running a local screen session,
another one with a remote screen session via SSH) were affected at the
same time, so I don't think it's a shell issue. I cannot tell what
exactly I did at the time.  I only know I was typing something at both

I am unsure whether the context menu still worked. My terminals don't
have menubars or toolbars and I don't use tabs, so the context menu is
my only interaction mechanism with the terminal itself (plus a few
keyboard shortcuts I don't care to remember). I'll try this when the
problem reappears.

How would I do this? Is attaching strace enough?

I no longer believe in father christmas but have no trouble
comprehending a nuclear apocalypse.
