Gentlemen, output commands that print less than a line will not be seen if
on many terminals if one does LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.Big5

address@hidden:~$ echo -e ZZZZZZZ\\c
address@hidden:~$ LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.Big5
address@hidden:~$ echo -e ZZZZZZZ\\c  <-----output from this gets wiped away by 
a carriage ret
address@hidden:~$ echo -e ooooo\\c|wc
      0       1       5         <-----proof that the failure is not in 'echo'

this is an important bug, e.g. i'm trying to learn perl and
   perl -e'print 1+1'
is not talking to me do to this.  I must run it in an emacs *shell* window.
