      That's not really enough information to be sure, but I suspect you're seeing new MultiTracks caused by options under Configure / Mic-E Notifications.  By default, if someone transmits a Mic-E status of Emergency or Priority (or Alarm, Warning, Wx Alarm, or TESTALARM) (or an emergency (\!) symbol), a MultiTrack is automatically opened.  Other Mic-E status receptions will cause a message to be queued.

      This is my implementation of Bob's EmergencyCode specification from http://aprs.org/aprs12/EmergencyCode.txt which says:

      In the original APRS, these bits were to trigger these on-receipt-
       SPECIAL  - would CENTER the map on the symbol
       PRIORITY - would CENTER and ZOOM to 8 mile local range scale
       EMERGENCY- CENTER and ZOOM and ALARM beeps until cleared by operator.

      Rather than Centering the main map, APRSISCE/32 opens a new MultiTrack for Priority and Emergency (and other similar !TEXT! tags).

      Unchecking the options that you don't want to have happen or checking "Suppress Notifications" will probably eliminate the intrusions.
