git-rebase--interactive.sh: use printf instead of echo to print commit message

On systems with an echo which defaults to the XSI-conformant behavior
(Solaris, or others using Ksh), echo will interpret certain backslashed
characters as control sequences. This can cause a problem for interactive
rebase when it is used to rebase commits whose commit "subject" (the first
line) contains any of these backslashed sequences. In this case, echo will
substitute the control sequence for the backslashed characters and either
the rebased commit message will differ from the original, or the rebase
process will fail. Neither is desirable.

So work around this issue by replacing the echo statements used to print
out portions of the commit message, with printf.

Also, add a test to test for this breakage.
