every byte as a distinct coumn.

Please attach a script that does this, so we both know we're looking at the same
failure.  Sometimes there are several problems with similar symptoms.

Patch fixing the problem

This patch fixes the problem.
As an added bonus, it should also fix the column counting
when the file names contain control characters
(which are ^C -like escaped in the output).
I'll send this upstream in a few minutes.
