Please, have a look at the forwarded mail. Paul Vojta shows a problem
with the "all characters printable" setting. When replying, please
consider that Paul did not follow the discussion in may/june on the
texlive list about this neverending story...
In a follow-up, he wrote:
Never mind ... it's being set in fmtutil.cnf.
I hope Thomas seriously considers taking it out.
So, despite the fact that there was silence on *this list* about this
for a few weeks, I fear that we have to open this problem for discussion

When you have $\delta$ in the text produced by an overfull \hbox, it leaves
xterm in some funny mode in which most of the characters are graphics
things of some sort.
This is with teTeX-beta-22.214.171.12440627 (TeX, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.3)).
