+Bug#: 51833
+Product: Mono/Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: Debian Sid
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Minor
+Component: misc

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Backspace character fails to work at the end of a string.
+Description of Problem:
+\b as the escape symbol for backspace does not work in a Console.WriteLine
+when being positioned in the end of the string.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+Console.WriteLine("Backspace\b ");
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+It is not just cosmetical but can get nasty if for example output of one
+program has to be parsed by another program. The error is not mono
+specific, but also reproducable in .NET, thus probably being a
+specification bug.
+Not sure if it should be fixed, that would lose .NET compatibility. I have
+not filed a bug report at microsoft.
