Thank you for your report.

Please tell the details about how exactly is the display ``broken''.
I'm trying to determine whether what you see is a manifestation of
some bug, or some usage inconvenience that can be handled by

It could also be due to some issue specific to Windows XP.  IIRC, XP
(and all the other descendants of the Windows NT family) have a nasty
habit or resettin the display parameters and colors to the default
25x80 black-and-white mode when a DOS program is run in the DOS box.
If that is the reason for the problem, the possible solutions I can
suggest are:

    - run Emacs in full-screen mode;
    - upgrade to a more friendly version of Windows (such as Windows
      98 SE);
    - download and install the Windows port of Emacs.
