The number of Pager's desktops is determined by command line parameters.
If you start Pager as

Pager 0 3

you will get  4 desktops.
Now if Rows x Columns does not match this - the number of columns will 
be increased automatically.

Now, I'm seeing quite few comments related to the number of desks in 
Pager. Would that make more sense if I allow Pager to start without 
command line parameters, and in this case use *PagerRows X *PagerColumns 
to determine the number of desks ? And at the same time keep command 
line parameters for backward compatibility.
