The patch that Jay provided a few weeks ago to prevent my "missing fields" 
problem when connecting to an S/36 running in emulation under the AS/400 works 
great.  I've found another, minor, bug which seems to appear on exactly the 
same screens as the old bug did -- keypresses which result in the screen being 
sent back (like Enter, F1-F12, etc.) are not buffered across screens.  Other 
keys are buffered correctly.

Hmm, I'm not sure I'm using the right words for all of this, so I'll try to be 
really pedantic... for an example, say I'm in POP's library browser, and I 
decide to edit the library member TORDHP.  I type:
?TORDHP<enter><down-arrow><down-arrow><down-arrow>E<enter>
(ie, move to TORDHP in the directory listing, move the cursor to the field in 
front of TORDHP, enter "E" for edit)
If I type this quickly enough that I've pressed <enter> the second time before 
the screen has come back from the first time I press <enter>, then it's as if I 
hadn't pressed enter the second time -- the <down-arrow>'s and the "E" have 
been buffered, but Enter has not.  If there are more keys, it still follows 
this pattern -- eg, if I quickly type "a<enter>a<enter>a<enter>", tn5250 acts 
as if I had just typed "a<enter>aa".  And as I said, it seems to happen on the 
same screens as the other bug, so it seems likely that it has to do with the 
incorrect MDT.  Unless the screens are wrong another way.

I'm using the latest CVS version of tn5250.
