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.

+I see your point, however I fail to understand why it is that way...
+if a backspace replaces the character before it with the character
+after it, shouldn't "hello\b\n" replace the "o" with the linefeed,
+thus erasing it?
+does it exclude format effectors? if yes, why?
