	more(1) does not handle files with \r\n line termination correctly.
	It attempts to be `smart' and convert them to \n, but then apparently
	loses the proper offset within the file, and reads extra characters
	the next time it loads in a buffer of text.
	Run more(1) on an MS-DOG style text file.
	Upgrade to a more recent version of less(1).
