Description Dax Kelson 2002-08-28 18:41:14 EDT
Description of Problem:  
 
According to the man page: 
 
       -G     Use VT100 line drawing characters. 
       -U     Use UTF-8 (Unicode) line drawing characters. Under Linux  1.1-54 
              and  above,  UTF-8  mode  is entered on the console with echo -e 
              '\033%8' and left with echo -e '\033%@' 
 
Sample output: 
 
$ pstree -G 
initqwqacroread 
     tqapmd 
     tqatd 
     tqbattstat-applet 
     tqbdflush 
     tqbonobo-activati 
     tqcardmgr 
[snip] 
$ pstree -U 
initb

-U looks better for me then what you pasted, but that may be bugzilla on crack.
It does however have lots of '?' that look extraneous.
Comment 2 Dax Kelson 2002-08-30 12:51:23 EDT
After the batch of RPM updates on Aug 28/29th:  
  
GNOME terminal:  
-G looks 100% normal  
-U Has lots of ?  
  
example:  
     b?b

In phoebe3.

pstree -G and -U look 100% normal when run in GNOME-terminal.

At the mingetty console (runlevel 3), -U looks normal yet -G is messed up.

$ pstree -G 
initqwqacroread 
     tqapmd 
     tqatd 
     tqbattstat-applet 
     tqbdflush 
     tqbonobo-activati 
     tqcardmgr
