As in off of a Solaris system? That is a little unusual. I've got one
lying around myself, if need be I could plug it in and see if I can reproduce

Nor do I, but let's see what's in that file: can you show us the output you
get from running "od -tx1 test.c" on your testcase please, and tell us exactly
what editor you used. Also, type "od -tx1" at a command line without any
filename following it, type a quote mark, then press enter, then Ctrl+D, and
show us what that says.
Also, does the same happen if you use the ordinary (cmd.exe-style) DOS
console instead of an X-based GUI console?
