When running cgdb 0.6.7-2build5 in a Konsole (on Ubuntu 19.04 amd64), it shows colored text in the
source-code window, but the gdb window displays something that looks like ANSI escape sequence
fragments. This is the output of the source-code window after running `cgdb a.out`:

expected output: Colored text, saying e.g. "Reading symbols from a.out..."

TERM is xterm-256color, however `TERM=xterm cgdb a.out` exhibits the same behavior. This also
happens inside tmux or screen.
