Description Ed McKenzie 2001-08-26 00:15:34 EDT
The CPU info tab in guname shows a strange looking character at the end of
each string it prints.
Comment 1 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-27 18:24:06 EDT
This may actually be a bug elsewhere.  I'm also seeing the same dotted box
character in gnorpm.
Comment 2 Jonathan Blandford 2001-08-27 18:29:17 EDT
Those are Ctrl Characters.  The new version of GTK+ now prints out previously
printed characters as a dotted box.  guname is probably just printing out the
'\n' at the end of the entry it read in from /proc
