Never Ending Stoooryyy...

Here continues a man's story of how mc conspires with other parts of his 
Linux system to drive him greyhaired or hairless before his age would.

First, I found where the 'missing' message from svgalib went to: The 
spare tty it needs to put an image on a text mode console.

Second, I found yet another oddity. I had two logins as usual, on ssh 
and on the console. Both had mc running with one pane set to the same 
empty 'temporary' directory. On the ssh login I copied an image to this 
directory, then started zgv on the console. I then copied another image 
to the directory and exited zgv. The mc instance on the console showed 
only the first file.

I repeated this using zgv-sdl. Both images appeared in the pane the 
moment I exited the viewer. Okaaay... looks like zgv and svgalib 
together are a few cents shy of a dollar. For now I'll use only zgv-sdl 
and see what happens.

get the pilot pregnant!
