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?

We sent in an extensive catalogue of behaviours of this sort a few months ago
(including those you mention). We've gotten no relevant fixes. I'm hoping that
CLIM 2 will fix these ...
