Are they saying anything at all?

The GNOME terminal developers have not responded to my emails about the
bug report (yet) but some googling revealed the escape sequence problem
came up before some years ago and they refused to change the behavior
for the reason that a lot of other programs now depended on the current
behavior. I don't have a reference handy though.

The bug reports also demonstrate that they don't really understand the issue, and have made a few changes to make it more complicated. (I'm not expecting anything productive from upstream unless a new developer takes over ;-)
