Which is one of the reasons while I (usually) compile --without-arts.  But 
when arts is compiled in (and konsole has the default settings), the main 
problem is this:

scroll in vi and hit the bottom
(better start typing some text)
*beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*
(oops, I'm in the wrong mode; switch into Insert mode to backspace the mess)
(due to backspacing at the start of the line)


Clarence goes crazy.
