Ok, sorry -- that one you can get out of via ^C^C.

But I do get into situations where I *cannot* get
out via ^C^C.

Here, I got into one a couple of days ago, couldn't
get out of it (the ^G situation), so I renamed
*shell* to something, and made a new *shell*.

Here's some cut-n-pasted output from the renamed buffer:

152 ==/dkcjunk==> 
152 ==/dkcjunk==> 
152 ==/dkcjunk==> 
152 ==/dkcjunk==> ls -d /opt/sfw/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/man

/opt6/usr/demo/link_audit/man /opt6/usr/java1.2/man /usr/demo/link_audit/man 
/usr/j2se/man /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/man 

152 ==/dkcjunk==> 
152 ==/dkcjunk==> ls -d /opt/sfw/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/man

152 ==/dkcjunk==> 
152 ==/dkcjunk==> h

152 ==/dkcjunk==> echo foo

152 ==/dkcjunk==> echo lll

152 ==/dkcjunk==> 

(Oh, here's the alias for the spellgrep (done in a non-broken

  276 ==/dkcjunk==> alias spellgrep
  /myexternals/opt/gnu/bin/egrep -i !* /usr/dict/words
  277 ==/dkcjunk==> 

Anyway, up with the ^G's, any time it wants to output
a line to the screen, you get these ^G's.

Any clues?

(I'll keep that bad buffer/window around, in case someone wants
me to try some experiment in it.  Note: I'll probably look
for posts here more often than I run email and have to
face all that spam...)
