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?

Yes, those are two different bugs.  I don't know how to reproduce the
first (or the second really...)  I would say I get the second far more
often than the first.

I experienced the first bug today. I was in our custom call tracking (help desk) software getting ready to sign off for lunch. When I exit out of the software after using it all morning, there is a multi-second delay. I pressed F24 and F3 then typed SIGNOFF. Obviously (?) there were two screens displayed before part of my signoff command showed. I fixed it too fast to notice how much was displayed.

On another topic, is the following picture easily explained?


Notice the top menu as proof I am using enhanced mode. The other behind it came up with gaps before I put the top menu up.

And wow, you should have seen it when I pressed F8 to move that menu!

Also, pressing F7 there causes my AS/400 job to end. F7 is not a valid key and should not be sent. It works fine in xt5250, so it must be an x5250 problem.
