Nothing found doing this grep...  As for doing a script, the "1034h" is
indeed missing in the plain shell you suggest below, but the problem
remains (see below).

Initially, after entering this plain shell, the problem does not exist.
 However, a simple "export LANG='en_US.UTF-8'" resumes the problem

These files do not exist on my system, so I tried without one and with
an empty one.  No change (problem still happens).

Is there somewhere in the bash code I can put some debugging statements
(or some way of logging) that you can suggest?  Since I'm running
Gentoo, altering the source to test is fairly simple.
