After latest changes in FreeBSD i have another behavior for applications
such as vi, ee, vim ...
Previously - if I open file for edit and close it - on screen stay file 
text. Now, if I close file - on screen - nothing - only
'vim /etc/rc.conf'
Some behavior for top.
if I set TERM=cons25r - it as an before, but, vim's behavior not 
adequacy - it forget about many keyboard buttons (such as arrow)

I see it only with using X - in clean console - all OK.
if I open ssh session to remote server - all OK.
Problem exists only locally.
