This is a screen+emacs bug.  For whatever reason, it truncated "kbr" when
pasting into Emacs.

Been using Emacs Console for years (inside Screen).  I often copy/paste into
emacs buffer.

If I open emacs editor with:
Emacs test.pl

Then I paste the following text into the emacs console window:

Only the following gets pasted:

I have tested this on emacs in Redhat 9, all the way up to emacs running on
CentOS 5.6

The same will happen with this text:

The "kbr" gets truncated.

I've looked for control characters, etc, but have found nothing.  Here is a
block from Microsoft Notepad:


If you paste that into emacs, the middle line is truncated.  

I do not even see how this is possible.  

Anyway, I thought I would let you know, I've definitely stumbled across
something very very strange.

Thanks for such an awesome editor, compiler, does-everything-I could ever
need program,,,
