Hi Stuart, 
Hi Matthias, 

thanks for your replies.  I've tested it with 80x25 terminals and also
checked the bsd.rd installer image.  To me, it looks ok.

I also know about SIGINFO but in my particular case, it was useful to
print the bandwidth all the time.  But I guess that most users don't
need that information and having SIGINFO/^T is sufficient.

Thanks for your comments,
