Screen corruption with non-printable chars

While diffing files with characters beyond currently printable charset (e.g. UTF-encoded with some 7 or 8-bit codepage set) every one of them is represented by '<MN>' hex code, however line width isn't recalculated. This causes really bad effect - see attached file (extreme case - comparing binary files).
I think I've already mentioned this somewhere, but can't find it now (and sorry, but this site is loading soooo slooooooow, that it's virtually impossible to search for more than 2 phrases and not get bored).
