Use of Scroll Lock key causes Terminal to go "up" through bash history

When hitting the scroll lock key while in a Terminal window, it behaves as if the user has used the Up arrow to scroll back through their bash history.

While this could be viewed as a "feature", it is actually rather annoying for those of us who have KVM switches that use double-Scroll Lock to initiate a machine change.

Even though Terminal interprets the Scroll Lock this way, the Scroll Lock LED still lights up on the keyboard when it is pushed (and goes out again on the second keypress).

Does not seem to behave like an up arrow on other apps. Also confirmed this is does not appear to be keymap-specific.

Setting to Terminal initially - but I suppose this could really be a bash issue.
