I can reproduce this in my PuTTY v0.63 with DejaVu Sans Mono. I don't
believe this is the fault of Textadept because none of the dialogs are
drawn properly for me, so neither would whitespace bullets.

I get proper highlighting and '|' instead of not equals.

I cannot reproduce this.

I seem to recall plenty of PuTTY issues since the terminal version came
out... I'm not sure what can be done about it. Please let me know if you
have any ideas.
