Do you (or your vendor) build with Mule? [A report with M-x
report-emacs-bug (with a reasonably fresh net-utils package) tends to

I've seen similar lossage with *terms (I forget which flavor), but not
in XEmacs yet.
It would be helpful to see exactly what output is being spewed,
especially if you can provide a translation.
