That's the mouse release event being sent by your terminal, but urwid has
already exited so your shell is echoing it back.

One fix would be to activate buttons on mouse release instead of press.
That's tricky though because release events usually don't include which
button was released, and how should a click outside a button with a release
inside the (or vice versa) be handled?

Another option might be to wait briefly before exiting when the button is
clicked with MainLoop.set_alarm_in but that's not perfect either.
