This is correct.  Currently the widget used supports a sub-set of the vt100/
xterm escape sequences (mainly to speed time-to-usefulness, and to
work on speed and stability before doing everything vt100/xterm does,
much of which is never used), but runs everything i've tried.  It
looks like pstree uses a different method of selecting the alternate
character set than other programs that do work, such as mc.

Please submit the bug report if you wish.  Although i'm certain it is
but a small patch away from being fixed :)
