This has been happening for me over several years, on several Slackware version - but I just never found the time to investigate it.
When I use rxvt, after a while, lines don't seem to generate new line characters, so when reaching the end of the line (when typing a long command) - it jumps to the beginning of the line (on the same row) and starts overwriting characters.
As a new Linux user, one of the things that's kept me away from the Command Line (CL) is that, for tasks involving files and folders (i.e. everything!), the amount of typing involved makes using the CL inefficient. I myself have a tendency to use detailed file names.
