The color escapes are regular ANSI escapes, and I've had very
long-running sessions with plenty of colored output where this does
NOT happen.

I suspect the culprit is an interaction with the system pager ('less'
in my case).  I have a hunch that I've seen this problem only after
having used less to page long sections of info.  But it doesn't happen
always, so I just don't know.
