That was a lot more difficult than it sounded!! :)

I tried vi, emacs, sed, tr and finaly perl (!!). Perl finaly managed  
to find and replace the
faulty characters...

Something in the TERM I guess...

But the last part didn't end up at the 64 char limit the other lines  
have. Instead, the last
char on that line is at position 15. Would that be a problem?

Are you thinking about the '--ignore-crc-error' option?
