I don't have any ideas from your description. Was this compiled
with WATT-32? PDCurses or SLang? Do you have a version of ansi.sys
(, nansi, etc.) running? What happened with a clear screen
(cls) command? Is this independent of the video card? What kind of
"strange symbols" did you see? Does resetting your codepage with the
MODE CON CP PREPARE and MODE CON CP SEL commands do anything?

I only have SVGA to test on. I went from CGA to SVGA. I've never seen
a real EGA display.

I can't think of any changes between dev.6 and dev.8 affecting DOS
other than a possible switch to WATT-32.
