Some installation menu, in text mode do not show
properly. The screen is not cleaned between screen
change, and I can still see the "dos" text in the
background, and the previous menus aswell if nothing is
written over it.

    I think this might have to do with a scrolling bug.
    I have seen it in a program as well. the programs uses it to
    update (or to clear) the screen. Harekiet and I were unable to
    find it when we were debugging it.

    Pierre-Yves Grardy (zorbid),

    could you attach a very small install program which has the
    bug to this report ?

    The exe I got isn't nice to debug.

    If you supply one it would be easier to
    find/reproduce/correct the error.

    Sorry if it is late, but I discovered the problem while I was
    testing my floppy disks. I have quite a lot of them, and I didn't
    remember in which game the problem occured. I didn't want
    to test every game Ihave no floppy... Finally I found
    something. It is Lemmings Install.exe.
