My first patch have the bug (that masked if after paging prompt blank 
line is printed): every comma in print worth one space. As result next 
line is have extra (wrong) spaces at start. I fix this by using 
Term.cout.write() method instead of print statement.

In addition I try to create seamless coloring when page_dumb() is used. 
Problem appears because prompt between pages break coloring, and after 
prompt tail of long string or docstring is not colored. For avoiding 
this behaviour I store last escape sequence in variable last_escape and 
add this one to the start of next portion of lines. On Windows it works 

Use attached patch instead of my first one.
