Hi James,

Each sorter's portion of input is delineated along line boundaries as
detected by the main buffer-filling routine.  I don't think any
multi-byte character set problems should have been introduced.

What type of issue specifically concerns you?  I'm going to start
putting together some tests soon, and I'd like to include a test case
that would exercise the type of bug you have in mind.
