I should add one thing that I've just noticed.  The properties that had 
any funny things in them, like escape codes, etc, were not salvaged either.

I had two of them, one was #0.GA (The Telnet Go Ahead sequence), and 
#0.Colorful, which was a highly colorised string with 7 or 8 escape codes 
in it.

Bar that, it seems to be ok otherwise.
