Thanks for the suggestion. However, not really appropriate as it only
involved single characters in the middle of a long translation.
However, in another terminal it got displayed slightly differently and
I saw the following (this is a unicode cut/pasting, hopefully it

It's a multibyte UTF-8 charater split by a newline :(. Looking back it
