[Bioc-devel] Biostrings: unicode character ("compact ellipsis") in print()/show() output (2nd attempt, rephrased)

Dear colleagues,

As noted in my previous message, I have encountered problems with the 
new way of displaying sequences/sequence sets that now use a UTF-8 
ellipsis character (internally defined as R object 'compact_ellipsis' in 
the package) when the output is included in a LaTeX document (which 
happens when printing biological sequences via the 'Biostrings' package 
inside LaTeX-based Sweave or knitr documents). My question again: Is 
there any special measure that I can take to counteract this issue? 
(e.g. like loading \usepackage[xxx]{inputenc} in the vignette, setting 
an option, or manually refining 'compact_ellipsis') Is there a way that 
the users can revert to the old-style dots for such cases?

As a sidenote: this causes the building of my package 'apcluster' to 
break on a non-UTF-8 locale 
but leads to warnings also in a UTF-8 locale.

Any help is gratefully appreciated, thanks so much in advance!

Best regards,
