 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.

+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.
