From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
busybox ls writes escapes sequences (colors ?) before filenames when
used in a 3270 terminal during mainframe installation.
export TERM=dumb doesn't help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start mainframe installation
2. try to list directories in 3270 terminal
3. have to fall back to echo * to get readable directory listings

Actual Results:  # ls -1 /
 �1;36mbin �0m 
 �1;34mdev �0m 
 �1;34metc �0m 
 �1;34mlib �0m

busybox-1.0.0-pre5 is in the pool.  Does this one show this behavior.

ls still prints lots of escape sequences and makes the output 
Tested with busybox-1.00.pre5-3
