Patch

This has annoyed me for ages, and I finally found a solution which works for me at least.

I'm not sure whether I need to go on using xterm.str or whether that was just a way to get the binary characters.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

printf isn't really portable, but this is off-by-default anyway, so I'm not sure I care.

I think Neil is the only other person I've ever seen express interest in this.

The idea was that xterm.str did not end in a newline, the intention being that sed would honour that in its output, so you should hg remove it.
