When I enter shell mode (I'm using ksh) if I start a
program that has lots of output, I can't break it
or move my cursor around until the program ends.
Please just email me and tell me to shut up!
Don't use shell mode. Use an xterm instead. Modern shells have *much*
better editing capabilities than shell mode.
