Thanks for your bug report. Can you give further information about why this happens on your system?

This has been previously reported as bug #50692, bug #51301, and bug #51446. It's clear that several people are seeing this symptom on their systems, both Windows 7 and Windows 10. It's also clear that no Octave developers have been able to reproduce this yet, so it's possibly not something that Octave itself is doing.

Since Octave 4.2.0, I have weird problem and keep using 4.0.3.
I am using Octave-Windows version in Windows 7 - 64 bit.

Whenever I open, the cursor in command window moves down periodically. Probably every 2 ~ 3 minutes, the cursor moves down, even I don't do anything on the GNU Octave.

Here I attached two screenshots; Octave at startup and Octave after 5 minutes without any activity in it.
As you can see, the cursor move downward significantly.

This bug doesn't do any impact on my programming, because it doesn't happen on edit window. But it annoys me a lot, so I keep using Octave 4.0.2.

Hope someone has similar issue and alreadly solve it.
