OK, that's a funny one. "Why won't it remove these nonexistent characters?" Seriously, though, the later characters are unfazed. Seems like a new problem. I'm sure I've used BRU before in similar circumstances ... wait, let me try on another computer. Yeah, same thing there. After the 13th character, forget it. This is 32-bit BRU version 126.96.36.199 on Windows 7.
