Thanks for responding, the following code is a stripped down version of the
code that is causing the problem. As stated,
the problem is that I am manually setting the cursor with wmove() in this
code to but the visual cursor stays at (0,0). Thanks for any advice you give
with regards to resolving this issue. It's really bugging me.
