Did a little experimentation, found out that it does not occur in the web version, but only in the executable version I'm using (for Linux). It happens after you trace() a string that exceeds that limit, and doesn't seem to end until TIC is restarted. Here's a screenshot.

successfully reproduced it only on Linux and I'm intrigued what's going on :)

will try to fix, thanks
