So "I even have the bug with aptitude" means:

"It was not only in that occasion, I continue having this problem with
aptitude now, and happens with every script that uses colours"

Is that right?

If the reply is yes, I will change the bug tags to confirmed, and in
that case probably we should try to do some resetting of the terminal
before continuing.

I still would like to know if this happens for other people, and if
it's with all terminal types, locales, etc... I personally have never
seen this (or noticed it).
