I think both one and two are because we are using a "passable" curses
emulation.  I personally feel lucky to have any curses at all, but I am
still wacking away at the bugs or differences as I find their cause.

If you spawn a text mode viewer then yes you have to wait till you
are done.  This is how lynx works.  Also, just like lynx in X, if you run
a windows program as a helper app then you can continue.  I have run
realaudio links and then kept surfing so I know Windows applications don't
