Corrupted shell display

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. at shell prompt, type cat ./<binaryfile>
where <binaryfile> is the name of a binary file
Display in the shell is all corrupted
Writing binary to a terminal can have all sorts of results -- this is not a bash
problem, or a gnome-terminal problem.
Don't write random bytes to a terminal. If you do, by accident, you can type
'reset; stty sane' to recover.
