exec() cuts of trailing whitespace characters
from received output lines

it does so by using the isspace() C-function 

so it will cut off any formfeed (0x0C), linefeed (0x0A),
carriage return (0x0D), vertical (0x09) and horizontal
(0x0B) tab characters, and of course space (0x20) itself
when using the default "C" locale

i don't know enough about locales in general and
especially multibyte characters in special, but this
might be the source source of the problem ?
