Pointing this out is a good thing, but I had already tested
this. Actually, since I installed many programs in Spanish, my
calculator is (to my dismay) in Spanish, and I get, by pressing and
holding right shift and by pressing the right arrow, on the

Espero comand.Servidor

It looks like

Awaiting Server Cmd.

and, evidently, doing *another* combination of keys gives me a text with
the Xmodem server.

Thus, what I am doing is right.

I do not know. I also wondered.

Me too.

Such a (trivial, as habitual) case should have been handled by the
developers, shouldn't it?
