Bug Description

Please see the screenshot.

When running aptitude (via SSH inside iTerm 2 on Mac OS), the items in the "Tasks" view have their first character missing from the display.
For example, the first row says: "D/3D creation and editing suite" where it should start "2D/3D creation...".

This is an unsupported release now. Please think to install the next LTS 'Bionic 18.04'

Marking as Invalid because the release is EOL is not correct. Marking as Incomplete. Also, 18.04 is (at the time of writing) still in development, and you should expect some breakage.

Reporter, is this still present on 17.10 or 16.04?
