question about S+elsewhere

Here are specifics that work for me.  I don't think they can be generalized
and packaged.

1. prompt.  Type C-g and then move then manually move the cursor to the
end of the line.  That usually works.

2. when the elsewhere server prompts you for the password, use
 M-x send-invisible
before typing the password itself.

3. Before starting S, type 
      stty -echo nl
at the unix prompt.  The -echo turns off the echo, the nl turns off the
newline that you see as ^M.

4. object name completion should work.  does it work correctly for you
using an older version of S-Plus?  I am thinking that the problems here
are related to the object name completion problems with S-Plus 6 that
we have been discussing on this list.
