It is not just cosmetical but can get nasty if for example output of one

+Backspace is defined in most systems as 'replace the character before
+the backspace with the character after the backspace'. This means that
+if the backspace is followed by a newline, it has no effect. It works
+this way in C (printf), python, MS.NET etc. So this is not a bug.
