I have been using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my system for about 5 months now. Since installing, I noticed that periodically there is a file written to my home directory that contains nothing inside of it.

The file name is "^-" (without the quotes).

Does anyone have any idea on how this is happening exactly? I can't quite seem to track it down. Any and all advice appreciated.
