Hi all,

When I issue asynchronous commands using shell-command, for example:

  M-! apt-get update & RET

buffer *Async Command Output* is filled with ^M characters and the
output is generally a mess.

Apparently not all Emacsen behave in this way though.

If you have a moment, could you perform a similar test and let us know
if the same thing happens to you.  Include the Emacs version number in
your follow-up, and if it _does_ happen to you and you have a little
more time, whether you consider it a feature or a bug?

Your assistance is much appreciated.
