We had this problem when we first brought the Cray in 1988. Later, we
had HP 9000/700x x-terms hooked up to it. I have been trying to
remember what we did to minimize the problem but it has been too long.
There were a couple of things that I remember. One was notabs with
stty. I think that just stopped the wierd flashing when you moved over
a tab. The bell was something that I think was caused by things such
as the repeat key on a teminal over driving the host computer. It
didn't matter if it was running x or what. The end result was a
mangled multi-byte, combo-key and a bell or something else strange was
the result. I keep having "B"'s and etc. pop up along with a bell when
I use the cursor's instead of hjkl. This is a mismatch on the terminal
types. I figure it is a re-training session for my fingers.
