That slowcat utility is really nice although it does not come with a man
page or a --help option. But good job! Now the output of
slowcat typescript was different than what I saw on the sun computer in
that some characters on one particular line were one unit to the left
and some characters below were not appearing till sometime later. But the
windows were blue as on the Sun. The same application displays black
bars on Linux+ncurses as it's supposed to.

I will investigate this further after I figure out how to get rid of
that flashing and why my subwindows are doing this.
