Re: help for editing text

     I just tried using "John G. Aspinall" on a DecStation using Clim 1.1 in
Lucid.  The only modification I made was to change the #\newline activation
character to be:

        (clim:with-activation-characters ('(#\control-\x) :override t)

So, I enter some text and type Control-x to exit.  This seems to work fine,
except when you hit 2 or more returns in a row.  The first return moves
the cursor to the beginning of the next line, but the next returns only 
moves the cursor down a fraction of a line on the screen.  Also, if you
use Control-P to move up a few lines and then hit return a couple of times,
the screen starts overwriting itself and gets stuck.
     Has anyone else who's used this function run into this problem?  Is
it something that's fixed in Clim 2?
