(I've never heard whether the 'current' in current-users is an adjective for
'users' or 'source-sode'.)

I'm running a 1.0 system and came across this earlier today. (I'm writing
this in 'vi' and I'm about to type '!$date^M' IN command mode. )

Does this imply that the code for vi that shipped with 1.0 is calling a
defunct ioctl mode? Or that it is making a bad call on a pipe? Worst of
all, the stty message actually gets inserted (as opposed to being written to
the screen where ^R could at least deal with it.)
