The workaround is to do a "stty -tabs" in /etc/profile for the console
vt's only.  The bug, near as I can tell, is that there is no tabstop
set in column 73.  You can see this if you type a bunch of tabs at
the command prompt.  The last one will skip from column 65 to the next line
if "stty tabs" is turned on.
