In pinlog file, error,warning and debug messages are being masked with ^@ as
op_bill_item_refund input flist
# number of field entries allocated 4, used 3
0 PIN_FLD_POID POID  0.0.0.1 /account 1152874 25
0 PIN_FLD_BILLINFO_OBJ POID  0.0.0.1 /billinfo 1153258 6
0 PIN_FLD_PROGRAM_NAME STR  "Customer Center"
Steps To Reproduce:
1. Clean the cm.pinlog.
2. Run testnap to call an opcode
3. Do a grep as shown below on the cm.pinlog file.
m001:pin20 9mui> grep "^D" cm.pinlog | wc -l
m001:pin20 11mui> grep "D Fri" cm.pinlog |wc -l
On HP-UX machine, doing a cat -v cm.pinlog one can notice a special character ^@ symbol in the beginning of error (E), debug (D) and warning (W) messages. But vi editor does not shows this symbol.
It looks this is a problem with "PIN_ERR_LOG_MSG" provided by Portal 7.0.
In the cm.pinlog there are 102 lines starting with the "D".
Only 18 instances are shown with the "D".
