While not an ideal solution, you can use ^L.  That will completely 
redraw the screen and might help.  It isn't a lot better than having to 
read the messages manually but since it completely redraws the screen, 
spaces should be seen as spaces and not run together.  I do that 
sometimes when I want to make sure I'm hearing what's actually on the 
screen.  If that doesn't help, perhaps it is using something other than 
space to separate words such as high ASCII or similar.
