Hi,

On my Mac system, there is a version of emacs 21.2.1 in /usr/bin/
emacs.  I have a bzip tar file.  I type:

emacs foo.tar.bz2

from a Mac "terminal" window (not an X11 window) and it comes up just
fine: inside the terminal.  I can move around just like I remember.

Maybe whoever built that version of Emacs for the Mac did something
special to it.

I get the same results with the emacs on the RS/6000 that I built personally. I simple did configure and make. That emacs is 21.4.1.

I tried both Emacs 21.2.1 and 22.0.90.1 (2006-11-12) and they both escape the characters to they ^-ed versions

To illustrate, first line from /bin/ls.

It does this both in terminal and gui (started with -q)
