Error description

  • If a 'tell traveler' command is issued on a local server, and
    the returned text contains special characters, issuing the same
    command to a remote console does not return the same text.  The
    special characters may be changed.
    We recreated the problem on our test systems.  We discovered
    that the response text undergoes UTF-8 conversion when the
    command is issued remotely, causing the 'e with accent' char
    (extended ASCII char 0xE9) to be converted to a two-byte UTF-8
    char (0xC3A9).  We need to convert back before printing.
