Not even really a bug, just a curriocity...
Console in text mode...
for some reason, about one in every 100 times the console scrolls, it wont
scroll cleanly, ie, text will flash (almost subliminally) where text
shouldnt be...

for instance, when scrolling somthing like:


I will ocaccionally see .'s on the right hand of the screen, when I scroll
back to see if its really there, it isnt...
and somtimes it happens when I am scrolling just one line...

Any suggestions?

PS... while we're on the console... is there any way to make the scroll
back buffers stay, even when you switch to another tty and back?
Thats kind of a bother too...
