Bug#265552: pstree indentation doesn't line up in xterm

Hmm, this looks more and more related to bug #265553 then. As I explain
there, psmisc generates a line including escape sequences, and then truncates
it to fit in the width of the screen. It adds this "+" to indicate the
line was chopped. Since it doesn't take the escape sequences into
account, the lines are often truncated at much shorter than $COLUMNS
displayable characters, and also it could chop a line in the middle of
an escape sequence, as it seems to have done here.

If that sounds right, I'll reassign this bug to psmisc and merge it with
#265553. I should have thought that when one finds two strange things,
they're often related..
