    Ensure text mode when calling debug functions · 2b2595e0
    Tamar Christina authored
    Something seems to be changing stderr into binary mode,
    so when the `traceIO` is called, the C code that ultimately
    calls `vfprintf` is using a binary mode handle.
    This causes newlines not to be encoded properly.
    The patch ensures we're in text mode when writing the debug
    messages (% interleaving as it's not thread safe at all) and restores
    the previous mode when done.
    I'm slightly concerned about the performance implications of writing
    large dumps out in text mode, but I think the current behavior is not
    intended as I cannot see any of the printing code setting the mode of
    the std handles.
