Re: sh command bogus output in UTF-8 text

  | sh in netbsd-8 seems to be fine.

It was for this particular usage, but gets those chars incorrect in
other places.   In general sh is much more clean now than it was, just
here docs with unquoted end delims (ones that are internally processed)
got missed from the final processing somehow.

I have a working version (different patch entirely from the one I sent
to the list earlier) but I'm not entirely happy with the way that it is
implemented, so I am looking for how to make it better before committing

They all are now, there's no longer any "supposed" (or none that I have
been able to find) ... the problem here is in a failure to undo the
escaping before output.
