Description of problem:
These lines in src/spicelib/analysis/dctran.c broke ngspice in server mode since they write on stdout at the same time than the function src/frontend/outitf.c:OUTpData that write the output in binary mode:
/* show a time process indicator, by Gong Ding, firstname.lastname@example.org */
The serialised double array is thus spoiled by many "%xx.xx\b\b\b\n".
They are only included if we enable ndev.
I suggest to remove these lines by applying a patch.
ngspice-25 is also affected by this bug.
