Another detail about the screen memory problem:

Apparantly, the screen becomes 132x12--using Lynx, the top of the screen is
indeed the top of the screen, but I can only use the top 12 lines of the
display. The same thing seems to have happend with ytalk--both lynx and ytalk
are ncurses applications.
Again, this is 2.1.112 (full) without SMP + devfs-v47 + framebuffer-devfs
