Some x5250 bugs/questions: Typeahead does not work right. To reproduce this, type a CL command that takes awhile, and then type something else while it's running. For example: DLYJOB DLY(10) and while that's running, type WRKACTJOB (or whatever else) -- don't hit enter -- when the DLYJOB is done, you'll see that the characters didn't echo back correctly. Screen still flickers like crazy. There's extra spaces between the lines on the screen... perhaps 5-6 pixels that are just "black". That makes the x5250 window too big to fit "one above" and "one below" on a 1024x768 resolution, which frustrates the heck out of me. It's also wider than xt5250... I assume that this is a font size issue. Is there a way to set the fonts in x5250? I tried the font_80 and font_132 config keywords that work in the xterm, gtk and windows versions of tn5250, but they didn't have any affect. There should be a way to disable the cursor changing positions when you do a middle-click to paste text. It drives me nuts when I copy/paste and the cursor moves to some random spot on the screen! If I copy/paste to OpenOffice or Mozilla it grabs some garbage characters, including "invisible" ones that don't take up any space on the screen, but are there just the same. I have the exact same problem with GTK-5250, too... but not with xt5250. x5250 crashes with +enhanced when a window is displayed on the screen -- but I think you already know about that... I wish I had more time to look at the code -- I'm sure I could resolve these issues myself if I put the effort into it.
