This sounds a lot like Bug#2772 which was recently closed as unreproducible:
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=2772

Maybe we'll have better luck here.  One good piece of information that
the old bug lacked is that this is not happening consistently.

Are you still seeing this problem in a more recent version of Emacs,
preferably the latest version 26.2?

If the answer is yes, Eli Zaretskii suggested the following in the
discussion about the old bug report:

Could you please provide us with such a termscript file?

Thanks,
