Ambassador terminals

I use an ambassador terminal, and among other things, I run a status line
on the 60th line.  To do this, I define the bottom line as a Lower Host 
Area, using the escape sequence ESC[60;;1p  

When I start up emacs, it automagically sends the sequence ESC[x;;;xp
, where 'x' is the line length (apparently as obtained from the exec).
This unfortunately, wipes out my status line.  It also seems that it
sends this sequence twice, for no apparent reason.

I have written an Ambassador library myself, which among other things
sets up the function keys, and places default defnintions on them.
I could just add a line which output the screen size I wanted, but 
that would be less than optimal.
