Thank you so much.

That was half of the issue.  The manual page explained that I can set it to 2
for Linux to get the previous behavoir, and indeed, now it is much more
responsive, HOWEVER, it doesn't show a high frequency of frames any more; it
just sort of shows one frame every half a second.  Another option?


I'll have to return to this later.  I'll try to figure it out from patch sets
in pre6.

I tried to read it but it was enormous and I wasn't sure if I'd see it even if
I read it ...
