Yeah.  Don't know about the VGA problem, but it wouldn't surprise me if
there were a setting somewhere.  I don't know about Windows support with
mouse and all in TinyTERM; I guess I'd have to modify my statement about
"exact funtions."  Maybe someone else knows about this one.  Anyway, that's
a far cry from 25-line character terminal support.

1. 25 lines on terminals

On my OSE system I am using pcs as dumb terminals.  Each pc runs a copy
of kermit, which emulates a vt220.  In my .profile I also set TERM =
vt220.  This works ok, except that the behaviour on the 25th line of the
terminal pc is a bit erratic.  Sometimes it is written to, sometimes
not.  Emacs behaviour certainly seems confused.  The clear command does
not clear the 25th line at all.

Is kermit at fault here ?  Any suggestions ?
