Could that be \017, i.e. octal 17 (defined in ASCII as SI, whatever
that may be)?

Wild guess: Are your files using the same character set as your
Haskell system is expecting?  I know Windows pulls some occasional

wasn't aware that it affected underscore.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
