The PSD docs claim that clear (and thus, also erase) moves the
cursor to (0, 0) in the window cleared or erased, but this does
not appear to happen.
Experiment with clearing windows and writing into them.
This shows up only in applications that don't always need to move
somewhere in the window after a clear, however, it does contradict
the documentation, and the automatic move to (0, 0) is a win
for many games.
add "wmove(win, 0, 0);" before the "return (OK);" in erase.c.
