Re: RAM required for color X terminal

    Backing store is an attribute of the root (genera) window;
    symbolics consoles work fine on X servers that have backing store
    turned off, but that information must be available at the time
    the root window is created. If you can't tell the NCD server to
    disable backing store, you could at least turn it off in the
    genera windows by changing the :backing-store argument of
    create-window (in x-screen::setup-root-window) from :always to

I told the NCD terminal to disable backing store; but I forgot to
specify :Reuse No to the Start X Screen command, so that command was
reusing a previous window which had been created while backing store was
still enabled on the NCD.  Thanks for your help.
