Here's a summary of replies and comments I received.
1) cmdtool is fixed in Solaris 2.2 / OW 3.2 -- I have not been able
to verify this but if it is correct, this is the 'nicest' way
around the problem.
2) filec works when cmdtool is running via a remote shell, ie:
cmdtool -I "rsh mymachinename"
This runs up another copy of csh, and incurs communication
overhead, but it's not particularly noticeable.
3) Use xterm with the scrollbar enabled (-sb) and set the number of
lines saved to something big (-sl abignumber). This is the 'fix'
I'm currently using; it has the added side-effect that xterm
provides a nicer vt100 than cmdtool. (Is cmdtool supposed to be
a vt100? dunno.)
Hope this is useful to someone out there...
