Version: 2.6-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

      When I run /usr/share/doc/ruby-eb/examples/test.rb through ruby1.8 after
some modification
for my environment, the first four characters of each output are invisible,
"\000\000\000\000", while /usr/bin/eblook runs normally.

This appears on my wheezy PC (3.2.0-3-amd64), but doesn't appear on my squeeze
