Thanks everyone who helped me with this thorny problem.
Everything works fine now, with one little exception:
When it takes longer to transmit the screen than
the refresh interval, the AS/400 process executing
the refresh code can't keep track of time anymore:
The clock value (e.g. from MATMATR) slowly slips
behind the real clock value. It is as if a "clock base"
for the process doesn't get updated correctly.
This problem shows up mostly with the async
console that runs at 19200 baud.
This is not a display problem, but very
likely a SLIC bug. (I'm at V4R4).
