Yeah, I really hate that about Omnicom's screen dump and capture modes.
All the VT100 codes are left in there.
If Itay Chamiel ever gets off his rear, his term program Megaterm
has a good screen dump feature that doesn't mess things up.  He doesn't
have a capture buffer mode built in though.  I am using it right now, and 
it's a lot more user friendly than Omnicom, and doesn't tend to drop
characters at 2400 baud.  Omnicom did this to me every now and then.
It has drop down menus for configuration.  It can be configured up to
19.6Kbaud, but seriously, I doubt if the 8 bit could keep up.  

Anybody wish to put it to the test with a v.32bis modem?
