Existing Lisp?

    In System 78.17, ETHER 22.0, microcode 840, on Xerox Lisp Machine Two:

    I don't understand the behavior of the Existing Lisp option in the Split
    Screen menu (under the system menu).  It doesn't give a menu of choices
    and as likely as not makes a new Lisp Listener anyway.

It does the same thing as the CALL key; finds a Lisp listener which isn't
doing anything, or if there isn't one makes one.  I don't know whether
this is a good idea for either of these.
