I think this is because the pty emacs uses to communciate with the
shell process is kept in cooked mode, and so it's interpreting any
terminal control characters it gets in the input.

It's a bug, though I'm not sure the right place to fix it offhand.

You can work around it by prefixing `wierd' characters like tab with a
literal ^V character (inserted using `C-q C-v').
