Well, I think that this very well illustrates problems with Axiom:
there is a known bug which hampers usage of an important package
(the REGSET package). When the bug is fixed you fuss over edge cases
in underspecified internal package.

Note that flushing output should be done when the outupt is complete,
while iprint clearly is used to compose bigger units from small parts.
But if you insist I may add a FORCE_-OUTPUT call to iprint (there is
no reason to have extra flush function).
