That is exactly what I am getting. It is probably acting quite correctly,
the problem is that the shell executing those control characters is both
confusing and a possible security risk. I've tried this in ksh, dash, bash
and zsh and they all execute the control characters.
I think that they should be suppressed or escaped by default and a flag
should be provided to allow them to be passed out unescaped. Maybe this has
become a feature request...
