The strangeness happens in Konsole too (as well as the virtual
terminals), so I kind of doubt it's the term's issue...

In this case, no ^[[1034h, but the utf glitch still happens.  Could it
have something to do with bash miscalculating the size of the
characters?  Strange thing is that I am not using any non-ASCII chars in
my commands, of course, so not sure why that would matter.  Is there a
way to turn off bash's handling of UTF, so when I set LANG, it will not
do anything "different"?  This could provide clues.

                Thanks, Joe
