There was a recent discussion about a terminal database update and the 
new Alternate Screen behavior.  I'm curious about the resolution, but I 
can't find that discussion.  Would someone kindly send a clue-by-four 
via overnight express?

Ultimately, I'd like to know how to get the old behavior back, with no 
alternate screen, and thereby reduce my blood pressure.

Alternatively yours,
