There seems to be another problem. Workbone used to have to have a nice
triangle symbol for play and that is now just a square. Is that a console
problem, a termcap problem, or a workbone problem. I don't know when this
happened but it has been the same in all 2.0 kernels and I dont remember when
I started seeing it in ghe 1.3 kernels.
