When one runs joe, it clears the screen and deletes any text that
appears, unlike ncurses programs like 'less' which save the screen.
This is a bug because I like to use the same virtual console to run joe after I
run make and ger errors, for example, then I refer back to
the error messages that were printed.

I believe the latest joe-2.8-24 still has this problem.

I've added it, and it should show up in the next rawhide snapshot

It sure needs some testing, though, as I use ncurses to save/restore the screen
while joe itself doesn't.
