Can you tell me which console are you using? which codepage? I tried
to reproduce your problem several times without luck. Used standard
command prompt and Console2

The only one I didn't tried is rxvt with bash since they have serious
issues (I suggest you use directly bash with console2 to get a nicer
tabbed console).

the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent
disinclination to do so.
