Rock.  This fixed that problem.

Would you happen to know why vi only displays the top handful of lines,
regardless of what `resolution' I set the console at, and regardless of
what I set "stty rows" to?

It's really annoying, I'll whip up a file in vi and it will show the first
10 to 15 lines, but the little messages appear on the bottom line as they
should be.  If I move the cursor down further on the display, the other
lines start appearing.
