Is this new list up yet?  Testing... 123

I've put some changes into CVS, the first is a minor bugfix for tn5250, which
only affects developers.  The second is a major update to gnome-5250.  It
kinda works now, and looks pretty spiffy.  It even has authentic keyboard
mapping to a degree (Left control key is error reset, right control key is
enter, enter is field exit, Pause key is help, Esc is system request - and
no delays when processing Esc).

To check it out, you have to download both tn5250 and gnome-5250 modules
from anonymous CVS, and compile and install tn5250 first, then:

cd gnome-5250
./gnome5250 my400

Please note that this version doesn't handle any command line switches yet.
It's also horribly un-optimized, and you might notice that on slower machines
(it redraws the whole display for every keystroke).

P.S.  In case you missed it, anonymous CVS is:

export CVSROOT=""
cvs login
# password is 'anonymous'
cvs checkout <modulename>

(I still have yet to put up some simple docs on the html interface, though
there is a CVS revision browser online now :)
