inconsistency between ddd console, and standalone gdb

There appears to be an inconsistency between the DDD console  and running GDB in standalone mode (no DDD) when connecting to a remote target.

I connect to the remote target, but have not yet attached to a task, so the console window in DDD acts just as if I had simply telnetted to the same target.  Using --trace option to DDD, when I hit <cr> a couple of times, I can see that communication to the target is:
-> ""
<- "\0\0apelleti-rp>"
-> ""
<- "\0\0ap"
<- "elle"
<- "ti-r"
<- "p>"

Strangely enough, DDD interprets these '\0\ as ignore the next character, so on the DDD console, this shows up as:

However, if I run the same GDB inferior debugger directly from the unix command line, and attach to the same target, and hit <cr> a couple of times, I get
(which is what I'd expect)

Don't ask me where the \0's are coming from in the first place, but they seem to be affecting DDD!
