Everything (basically) works.

However, warnings are issued relating to fonts when LANG=en_US.UTF-8,
which may or may not be relevant to my problem.

Results do appear to be visibly identical (other than the warnings)
regardless of which of the two LANG settings are selected.

The terminal window is too small in both cases.  Unreadable at the
default size and barely acceptable at the 'huge' setting.

How does tn5250 select it's fonts?  Are there some controllable settings
somewhere?

Thanks.

Rich
