Ok thanks was making sure I was not crazy.

The WINDOW system I wrote for S-lang, would repaint, but the way
I did it was using the "capture" to memory (using the SL read raw screen)
and then as each MENU item got pop'd off, restore the BEFORE image.

Kinda a hack I know, but worked really well.

SO... I guess, everything I will be doing will be using panels form this
point forward, six to one, have a dozen another I guess....

Again, thanks ...

Ok, I have been puzzling over this now for some time.

When creating WINDOWS, when a WINDOW gets closed, do you ALWAYS have
to go thru your window list and rebuild the screen?

"yes" - it's odd that delwin doesn't repaint the other windows, and if
you're not using panels, they don't get repainted.

I once used a version of curses (on VMS) which repainted after a delwin.
My impression was that it was based on a BSD flavor.  The AT&T / SVr4
flavor didn't do that.

(changing it would break some programs, I guess)
