I'm getting screwed by the Tecdoc command, when typing in Altmode X
(where X is some teco command I'm curious about) because often there
SUDDENLY appears a --MORE-- on the mode line which misinterprets my
type-in and says FLUSHED...
The screw is that EMACS then gets into a broken mode that can only be
exited by some ^G's. In this mode type-in still echoes and prompts
still are output to the echo area but nothing else happens.
Why not unFLUSH output as soon as EMACS starts waiting for type-in?
If the user really wants to quit then after looking at the output,
there's always ^G.
