Those characters are, oddly enough, not invariants across all the
various EBCDIC codepages.  That's why they aren't included in
the 'ebcdicsafe' array - if you send a '$' character and the
remote end has a different codepage, you'll get a different glyph

Think of it as the same issue as 8859-N, just on Really Bad Drugs.
