Hi Bruno,

Thanks for the report.
That's already covered by this test, from tests/tr/Tests.pm:

  ['bs-055', q|'a\055b' def|, "a\055b", 'def', 0],

FYI, that bug was fixed in July of 2004.  The fix appeared in
coreutils-5.3.0, released over two years ago.  People really shouldn't
be using such an old version of coreutils these days.
