Well, I found that the problem vanishes if I reset the locale support
(ie. unset LANG LC_ALL). So, although it doesn't solve the problem entirely
that's a simple work-around until it's fixed. (I guess you're also using
locales, right ;-)

I'll see if I need to add something to this bug report, re locales.
I extracted a small part of the bug script which indeed demonstrates
the error.
