[Openmcl-devel] How do I move the cursor in a window under program control?

This may not be relevant to your issue but just in case it is I offer it up.
I'm just upgrading from ccl1.7 to ccl1.10 and I find my "clickable" contrib doesn't
work any more, most obviously because gui::compute-temporary-attributes has changed,
and gui::set-temporary-character-attributes no longer exists. (My reward for
tinkering with unexported functions I guess. Must have gsoh!) My code had also
redefined hi::handle-hemlock-event and hi::stream-write-char and hi::stream-write-string.
I had recently been noticing other things about clickable and so I suspect maybe it hadn't
worked properly since 1.6.
I noticed along the way that ordinary use of the editor was acting strangely.
Putting the cursor somewhere in a file and typing text put the new text at the
top of the file, while maintaining cursor position.
If you're using my clickable contrib then maybe I'm to blame. If (as is likely) you're not
then maybe other hacks to hemlock that you privately use are running foul of these
(...temporary-attributes) or other changes inside hemlock. Point is, there have been
changes to hemlock's internals.
But you most likely thought of that. Just in case ...
