I'm not sure this is ok, because I still see the stderr output with your
minimal test case even when I have enough branches to not fit in one
screen. The stderr output is of course above the pager output (after I
quit the pager) and gets hidden out-of display as I stated before. I
also get weird 'ESC[m' characters with you minimal test case. I'm not
sure what I'm missing.

What version of 'less' do you use? Is any other configuration that you
didn't mention affecting what your observation?

You possibly might have noticed that my signature recently changed from
'Kaartic' to 'Sivaraam' both of which are parts of my name. I find the
new signature to be better for several reasons one of which is that the
former signature has a lot of ambiguities in the place I live as it is a
common name (NOTE: it's not a common spelling, just a common name). So,
I switched signatures before it's too late.

That said, I won't mind you calling me 'Kaartic' if you like it [of
course ;-)]. You can always call me using either of the names.


As I'm not a native English speaker myself, there might be mistaeks in
my usage of English. I apologise for any mistakes that I make.

It would be "helpful" if you take the time to point out the mistakes.

It would be "super helpful" if you could provide suggestions about how
to correct those mistakes.

Thanks in advance!
