OK, it's more… interesting than I first thought. I can reproduce it
when setting up a screen session inside tmux and I might need to be
connected to the screen session via mosh. It doesn't consistently
happen even then. I first thought it had something to do with my
setting TERM to xterm-256color, but it happens with screen-256color as
well. I've had the issue appear when switching the TERM variable to
xterm-256color and it didn't go away when I've reverted to
screen-256color. I've meanwhile confirmed I get the same problem when
I'm running under screen-256color all the way from the first shell.

I can actually provoke this by simply typing in a too long line: when
the last character in the last line gets entered, the terminal opens a
new line below, scrolling the content up one line (and keeping the
status line of the tmux in place on the _real_ last line). It then
scrolls up another line, repeats the the first character of the prompt
on the original line and appends any further characters entered after
