Greetings and thanks/kudos to all respondents on this issue.

The short form of the answer - for the archives - is:

man vidcontrol (yes, really) 

Scroll lock to give some control over screenfuls of stuff that normally
go whizzing by.
(Dunno why I didn't know this, but that's why we ask questions I guess)

So anyway, in alphabetical order (by first name) thanks to:

Charles Allen <ca531 at>
David Fleck <david.fleck at>
Eric F Crist <ecrist at>
Josh Paetzel <friar_josh at>
Malcolm Kay <malcolm.kay at>

Regards to all & many thanks,
