The culprit is FTE, http://fte.sourceforge.net/. When
starting FTE from inside a Console window (1.42), the
window will not be cleared and, instead, the upper left
corner will display two odd control characters in
yellow text on bright blue background. I have tried
this in multiple sizes, transparency configurations et
al. The "normal" console window (shown by unchecking
"Hide Console") displays FTE as it's supposed to be.

    Yup... I'll take a look. I don't know how FTE draws stuff to
    the console, but it'ss wierd...

    Unfortunately, it seems impossible to solve this one. My
    guess is that FTE creates a new console buffer, and writes
    to it. Console, being another process, is unable to obtain a
    handle for this new buffer, therefore unable to read stuff
    from it...
