In article <1078 at nsscb.UUCP> rhc at nsscb.UUCP (Rick Calder) writes a very nice
sample SYSV/386 console graphics program, with the following plaint:

You need to add the following line to the end of your acquiredisplay()
ioctl(0, VT_RELDISP, VT_ACKACQ);
This tells the driver that you've finished redrawing the screen and the
acquire process is complete.
