Ah, one more I forgot yesterday: switching between 80 and 132 columns still sometimes shows a blank screen. Pressing a key (even an arrow key) displays the screen. In particular, I refer to WRKMBRPDM then option 2.

Yup, I see the same bug (and it is annoying). I haven't figured out how to fix it yet. I *think* the problem is related to X events. For some reason the code I have to check if there are any pending events doesn't always work.

Also, sometimes my keyboard buffer doesn't work. I don't recall if it is some particular screen that causes that behavior, but I do notice it quite a bit when I'm trying to signoff. I'll lose the first few letters of the command and have to go back and put them in.

On a related note, I see blank spaces from the typeahead even though the characters are there. It's not always (ever?) the first character typed, so there is a gap. Odd but not a show-stopper.

Are you describing two different bugs here? I've seen the second one but never the first. Can you give me more details about the first?
