W # prints '28' rather than clearing the screen

All,

Recently, a Cache 2017.2.2  system started printing “28”  rather than clearing the screen when doing a  “W #”  in programmer mode.

Does anyone have any idea how this could happen?

This should clear the screen, but doesn't:

XXXX:YYYY>W #
28

type
KILL
DO ^%IS
hit Enter twice
WRITE

and look at what IOF and IOST are set to

%IS works correctly.

D ^%IS

IOF="#,$C(27,91,72,27,91,74)"

IOST="C-Cache Terminal"

The problem is that W @IOF  displays '28' for the '#'.  I assume this is coming from Cache.  Something got set in Cache to mishandle the W #.  Some Cache accounts work correctly, and some do not.
