I cannot reproduce this issue with rsyslog as shipped in Ubuntu 14.04
(7.4.4-1ubuntu2.6) or Ubuntu 16.04 (8.16.0-1ubuntu3). rsyslogd seems to
be handling the control characters correctly.
$ tail -f /var/log/syslog

Marking this bug as invalid as it isn't reproducible with Ubuntu's
rsyslog package and, judging from the version (7.4.8), you seem to be
running an rsyslogd from a third party or one that you built yourself.
