Colored directory listing bug with pdir.

Hi.
By default I've got dir aliased:
dir=pdir /[!RCS tags *~] /dkm /(dd-m-y th:m) /(zcK) /(35fn) /(a) /(-60i)
And have colors set for quite a few things. But, for the filetypes that *don't* get a color assigned I get a blank line after. Probably related, the above alias truncates descriptions correctly except for plain line, which just wrap onto the next line. Any ideas?
Thanks.
Bill

When I used your alias and did "dir | list /x" I could see the
trailing blanks that caused line wrapping / apparent blank lines for
me. When I made my screen 144 characters wide or wider the blank lines
went away.

I also see the blank lines only after files without coloring.
