Perhaps you aren't a native English speaker and incorrectly took offense
at the mild term "gobbledegook" which was not directed at you.  I was
referring to the author of the web page that you referenced.  If that is
the author of ConEmu then he really doesn't seem to have a handle on how
things work which is rather surprising given that he's written ConEmu.
"ANSI codes" and "Windows consoles" don't mix.

You seem to have missed the point that I posted a new snapshot with a
fix for this particular issue.
