    Re: ##More## Interrupt
    To: (BUG LISP) at MIT-AI
    	I am having problems with the ##MORE## interrupt in Lisp.
    The problem is that sometimes it occurs at the top of the screen
    rather than the bottom.
    	At first I thought it was my stuff or the splitscreen
    package, but you can get it in an almost bare lisp as follows:
    	Alloc? N
    	(fasload grindef fasl com)
    	;;; make sure you are near bottom of screen and
    	;;; fasload switch is on
    	(fasload grindef fasl com).
    	I notice the pagel is very large (I guess to use the ddt
    interrupt).  Making it 37. (on a tv) doesn't help.  Making it 36.
    causes it to occur BOTH at bottom and top of screen.
    	The problem is worse with splitscreening since there are
    fewer lines to work with and the occasional problem erases a
    larger percentage of your stuff.
    	Suggestions?  Thanks, Mark
    ps. turning off the who-line doesn't affect it.

As far as I can tell, the problem still exists in current
newio Lisp.  -- Mark
