Strange character input with mouse in Terminator

Sometimes, at what appeared to be random times, when I click a terminal in Terminator the mouse inputs strange characters, for example:

shell $  f*# f*#f* f*#f* f*#f* f*#f* f*#f* f*#f* f*#f* f*#f*
shell $  34#34 74#74 74#74 74#74 74#74 74#74 74#74 o/#o/ o/#o/ o/#o/

Upon closer inspection, this seems to occur sometimes after I open emacs in the terminal (I run emacs -nw). The solution is to re-open and close emacs. If opening and closing emacs doesn’t work, try opening emacs and clicking and highlighting randomly and closing emacs.
