Strange arm controller issue

arm tor controller in physical isolation gateway sometimes asks if i want to clear the log even with no input from me.
the terminal is not even the active window - so no accidental keypress.
if i say no to prompt, right arrow key asks again if i want to clear log… usually, it goes to page 2 “connections”.
is this hardware issue, and not whonix issue? like i said, machine is not being touched at all.

I wouldn’t know how anything Whonix does could cause such an issue. Could be defect hardware indeed.
