CI console output has begun putting a line break after many characters

I use Cypress test framework which prints a table-formed output on the console output, and until 3-4 weeks ago this worked fine viewing this on the GitLab CI console output (the black window).

Now, something has changed in GitLab CI (My Cypress version has not changed) - it appears that a line break is getting inserted after each hypen, resulting in the previous horizontal lines being just lots of lines with a single hyphen on them. It’s not just hyphens, there also seem to be extra line breaks other places, just not within normal strings.

It’s now almost unreadable, with thousands of single-character lines.


Is this a bug that has appeared?

Hey, there’s an issue here.
If I find a fix I’ll be sure to post it there.
