In addition to this (older) article I have to say that things still
don't work the way they should.

If I have a SSHv2 session from my FBSD client to my linux server on the
console, the screen gets messed up in *slrn* (running remotely)
Most other progs run just fine. Slrn runs fine too, but for that I have
to run it from a xterm in which I start the ssh session and than the
slrn program on the server. The screen does not get messed up than.

So, somehow there has to be something wrong w/ cons25 on the bsd machine
OR the support for it on the Debian Woody linux machine. It's a small
thing but still a pity ;-(( Like to solve it..
