Hey everyone,

This morning I updated tn5250 cvs to not require glib anymore. I've been running it with my changes for a while now without problems. Hopefully this change should help Marc-Antoine with his work.

Next is removing the python code. This should be pretty straightforward. I've already done most of it (but it isn't in cvs).

I'm wondering about lib5250.so. Because cursesterm.c is compiled as part of the build, lib5250 depends on curses. This shouldn't really be necessary considering that all the curses code should be in the curses terminal, not the 5250 library. For example, x5250 has no need of curses support. I'd like to be able to build lib5250 without curses or slang or any terminal at all.

Finally, can anyone think of a way I could have the terminal start and stop the trace at any time? I'd like to add a button to x5250 that turns on the trace and then turns it off, instead of starting the trace from the very beginning of the program.
