Hi Thomas,

we have here a bug report about nonprintable characters in the map
files. updmap uses grep a lot, and if coloring options are set, they get
into grep's output:

I could not reproduce it directly, because here the escape sequences are
also in the input of LocateMap, which consequently fails:

Scanning for MixedMap entries:
updmap: map file `bsr-interpolated.map' not found.
updmap: map file `bsr.map' not found.

where the filenames are underlined on the terminal. And then it hangs
endlessly, it seems.=20
