Ahh, that is exactly it.... reset the stty erase call.


On using Mosaic.... well it seems to be working.....

How does one turn off the startup url so that it either points to a blank
page or to my own page?  I was looking in the options and related icons
for something like a settings or preferences window, but did not see one.
There probably is a way to do that, if I can find it.... anyone remember
offhand what it is?
