Yes, that is correct.  I've been running with this patch applied for some
time now and I have no problems for those sessions that don't have
+enhanced.  The problematic parts are sessions with +enhanced and using
5250 windows.  I think I need to create a window object and lib5250 needs
to track those window objects and destroy/create them as necessary (or
call some function in the terminal object to do it).  Right now I just use
a global structure for that but I think maybe a window.c/.h is required.
