Figured you'd get it eventually. :)

And it *is* fixed; default pager is pretty big, pager geometry can be
set to 64x64 and it's all well behaved.  (What I _really_ want is the
64x64 pager to go to the big size on mouse over, without altering the
rest of the wharf, but I suspect that this is an unreasonable desire.)

There are still errors showing up --
