Linux: pstree formatting

Today one of our developers came to me to discuss a problem and I wanted to show him something on one of our Linux machines. To check a process, I ran pstree and noticed that the formatting of the output was all wrong:

simon@atlas:~$ pstree
initââ¬âacpid
     ââapache2âââ10*[apache2]
     ââatd
[..]
     âârsyslogdâââ3*[{rsyslogd}]
     ââsshdââ¬âsshdâââbashâââping
     â      ââsshdâââbashâââpstree
     â      ââsshdâââsshdâââsh
     ââudevdâââ2*[udevd]
