Re: xterm bug?

> RMS says in 1.3 xterm loses lines that scroll off the top of the screen.

More likely he crashed out of emacs or info (or anything that uses the
curses TI/TE sequences) and he's still sitting in the "alternate
page", which doesn't scroll.  He can use something like
'xterm*enabletite: false' in his x-resources to disable the alternate
page flipping feature, or he can just run info or less and exit them
*cleanly* to get back to the normal mode.  (maybe even something like
"tput te" will fix it?)

I've use 'XTerm*saveLines: 1000' since long before debian existed; it
certainly worked in 93r6, 1.3, and works in hamm right now.  Also,
I've never seen any bug reports in the debian tracking system about
behaviour like your message describes.
