Can you tell exactly (e.g. give examples) where this strange character=20
occurs ?

I guess I have fixed this one now.
A fix is in CVS now and should be in tomorrow's nightly tar ball.

Alternatively you my try this patch

This should at least silence the error that prevents switching between=20
character modes (hbar, vbar, bignum) after the first switch.

Maybe it also solves the "strange character problem" above ;-)
