Hi Michael & Oliver.

Just to check what is going wrong here could you try to execute the following two commands:
printf \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
/usr/bin/printf \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
echo -ne \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
Please try as above and also with full path to printf (/usr/bin/printf)

On my system it looks like this:

$ printf \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
0000000 51a8 0037
0000004
$ /usr/bin/printf \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
0000000 51a8 0037
0000004
$ echo -ne \\xa8\\x51\\x37\\x00 > x ; hexdump x
0000000 51a8 0037
0000004
