Maybe we should have kept it private for an iteration or two to keep the
noise/signal ratio low. Oh well..

Quicken's speed is now _very_  acceptable on the VC after once I chose
"rawkeyboard on" for "keyboard" in /etc/dosemu.conf. Still terrible under xdos.

This is now settled. Was due to "rawkeyboard off"

Hm, fine here with a nonameS3-805 video card.

I don't have to comment them out or in. For xdos, they are irrelevant. For
dos under a VC, I need serial { mouse com 1 device /dev/mouse }
