Description petr 2002-10-06 19:02:26 UTC
Description of problem:
In /var/log/messages, there are lines with strange charactersm like:

Oct  6 17:02:42 petr6 unicode_start: ^[%G
Oct  6 17:03:02 petr6 iptables: ^[[60G
Oct  6 17:03:08 petr6 keytable: ^[%G
Oct  6 17:03:09 petr6 sshd: ^[[60G

I don't know if it is bug related to sysklogd, but it is very confusing - i
suppose there should be some useful output instead of these escape sequences.
