Please refer to my previous mail.  I think it's better to extend the
internal character handling to int* instead of obfuscating it even
more with escape sequences (remember that they are processed multiple
times and such things as taking the length of something, see related
PR fix recently).

Until that is done, we should commit this diff, because it *fixes* the
breakage of coredumping and eating all input (not only th offending
chars), even when it does not solve the problem of not being 8-bit
