In the version of zwei on system 29.100 nws, with microcode 669, on LISP Machine Six:

Echo area printouts such as "(new file)" remain on the screen
forever, and it might be better if they were cleared eventually.
For example, that printout should go away if a C-X C-V is done
which finds a real file.  I'm not saying it should
go away precisely then and not before.  Hopefully there is some
simple thing which can be implemented which would have the
desired result.
Perhaps some operations including C-X C-V should always clear
the echo area if there is anything in it.
