I've been having trouble backing out just those changes, because
of the interdependencies of multiple files. I was able to verify,
however, that the problem with the display occurs with the patch from
dev.11 to dev.12. The status line in dev.11 is at the bottom of the
screen and in dev.12 it is one line above the bottom. I looked through
the patch file and don't see what is causing the problem. Is this also
a problem on other platforms? I'll try to look some more, when I get
some time. It looks like you integrated some of the code that was
ifdefed "EXP_READPROGRESS" into the main code. I've been compiling
without "EXP_READPROGRESS", if that makes a difference.
