M-x shell does not use term.el, and it doesn't attempt to emulate a real 
terminal. It stands to reason that it would behave completely differently. I 
can't really avoid emulating the terminal for my use case.

Did you reproduce the ansi-term line handling bug I explained, with the sample 
file I attached? The main problem is that it does not go away with any of the 
Emacs-specific utf-8-unix settings. It only goes away with a correctly-set LANG.

We might be able to suggest a default LANG when it's not available (is that 
what you meant?), but is there a valid non-locale-specific value for it we can 
use? Mine is set to "en_US.UTF-8", and I thought LANG requires a locale prefix. 
We obviously shouldn't just default to the en_US locale.
