I can reproduce the bug, however I think the bug is probably related
to the decoding part of the read_process_output function, which I am
not familiar with.

I hope that the following code (based on Alex's code) may illustrate
the bug in a better way.  The first piece of code returns t, which is
obviously wrong. But if we insert a space and delete it, it returns
nil in the second piece.

(let ((coding-system-for-read 'binary)
      (coding-system-for-write 'binary)
      (buf (get-buffer-create "*test-case*"))
      process)
  (with-current-buffer buf
    (erase-buffer)
    (setq process (start-process "test" buf "echo" "-e" "\r\n\305.\r\n"))
    (accept-process-output process)
    (goto-char (point-min))
    (search-forward ".\r")
    (forward-char -2)
    (looking-at "^\\.\r")))


(let ((coding-system-for-read 'binary)
      (coding-system-for-write 'binary)
      (buf (get-buffer-create "*test-case*"))
      process)
  (with-current-buffer buf
    (erase-buffer)
    (setq process (start-process "test" buf "echo" "-e" "\r\n\305.\r\n"))
    (accept-process-output process)
    (goto-char (point-min))
    (search-forward ".\r")
    (forward-char -3)
    (insert " ")
    (delete-backward-char 1)
    (forward-char 1)
    (looking-at "^\\.\r")))
