that's a possibility - if he's using the win32 version I would expect
problems (since it's a "binary" character).  But otherwise, it's
being redirected to a file - where he seems to have lost it.

0x9a (on vt220) is a request from the host for identification. (and since
it's not in any of the ISO-8859-* sets - it's a control character there -
perhaps it is the win32 version).

yes (slang ignores ctype in some instances)
