I am using Vagrant to ssh to a Linux VM from windows in a ConEmu console. Why I do that, the background color changes. Is there some escape sequence that is doing this? It doesn't happen when I ssh to other VMs.

enter image description here


This was caused by escape sequences around the "O" and "S" in /etc/motd. Changing that file to contain just the characters "CoreOS (alpha)" fixed it.
