Currently, when using an Ann Arbor Ambassador terminal,
GNU Emacs determines some screen settings (such as the
number of lines to use) from the TERMCAP and then sends
characters to the terminal to make it display that many lines, etc.
A user has complained about this, but I'm afraid to change
it because I don't know enough about people use those TERMCAP facilities
to know what's best in general. GNU Emacs is working now the same
way the original editor I started with worked.
His suggestions are either make Emacs not set up the screen geometry
at all, thus assuming it is already set up as specified, or to make
it send the "init string" and assume that sets it up as specified.
Can any one tell me whether either of these actions is likely to work
