	When paging text through more(1), such as when viewing man pages, the prompt
	informing the user how far through the file they are is not being erased
	properly, and instead is scrolled up the screen.  A ^L redraw fixes the
	display, but more scrolling re-introduces the problem.
	$ man ls
	Not sure, and I don't have time to look at this today.  This _really_ needs to
	be fixed for 1.4, though, or we'll look really bad whenever someone tries to
	view a man page.
