$ echo -e '\e[4mHelp me\e[24m' The two words get underlined, the space character does not.Does anyone realize just how many terminal applications use underlines to visually indicate text-entry fields? Now, they all disappear, and everything looks like crap.
I can't think of any valid reason for this change in behavior, since xterm still gets it right -- the space character is underlined. I can't wait to hear what was the urgent reason for this change that uglifies so many existing terminal apps.
