No, but are you aware that cdparanoia outputs different characters,
depending on the quality of what was read (see the cdparanoia FAQ)?
Spaces mean error-free reading, and are actually better than `-'
(frame jitter, though that's also mostly harmless).

If you start seeing the difference now, it might be another reason,
like a new kernel version which maybe supports your driver better,
or better CDs. ;-)

But I might be wrong, I didn't try the recent ncurses versions yet.
