1.1 dissappearing text ...

We're working in CLIM 1.1 Genera, Allegro (so that's pretty complete
coverage given y'all are having the problem in Lucid and MCL).

We've got the same problem, more or less. I've never reported it because I
can't isolate it very well. It appears in a context where we are using both
filling-output and indenting-output (though I've no idea whether either or the
combination of both of these has anything to do with the behavior). We have a
text formatting language (a mini-TeX, if you will) and if a text specifies any
of a number of environment changes, we insert a new line. This is where the
bug shows up. Text which is consed together from this formatting language's
directives, where we explicitly build a new display string with returns
embedded in it because of these directives, have the same "disappearing text"
properties reported - except that the last line always shows up. However (our
work around) if the data has a return embedded in it (from when it was written
in zmacs, for example), the disappearing text problem goes away.

Data A: ("This is a string"
         "with a new-line specified by our formatting language" 
         "all but the last line"
	 "will disappear under the conditions Daniel discussed.")

Data B: ("This string has new-lines embedded in it by zmacs
(where it was written). The line breaks are ``honored'' and
none of the text disappears")
