I'm 99.9% sure Konsole isn't generating its own carriage returns.

It's probably some config option.  I remember getting prompted to pick what 
level of questions I wanted to answer somewhere or other.  It was probably 
Debian, and the Ubuntu installer probably hides this question, and provides 
its own default answer.  I'm afraid my memory of what I'm trying to recall is 
so vague that I can't google or grep my way into an example of just what I'm 
talking about.

Maybe Hardy picked the "don't show me anything unless it's seriously critical" 
option.  I remember picking that one time, and being disturbed at the lack of 
control, so I went back to a more noisy option, but one a notch less noisy 
than the option that had me answer every bleeding question.

I wish I could be less vague.  I really do.  I know I'm definitely talking 
about something, but damn if I can remember exactly what it is.
