After more testing, it turns out that it isn't stable vs. unstable.
Instead it is courier fonts vs. fixed fonts.  With Emacs 20 I can use
either one; with CVS Emacs courier causes problems.  Specifically, with
CVS Emacs emacs -q M-x term ls with a fixed font works as expected but
with a courier font the columns don't line up correctly.

The two fonts I am using are:

I don't care whether I use fixed or courier so I switched to fixed for
CVS Emacs.

Now that I can use CVS Emacs for everyday work, I will compile a list
of the remaining problems and do what I can to help with debugging.

One problem so far: ssh to an HP-UX 11.00 system, set TERM to eterm, and
run vi.  C-d does *almost* what you'd expect but the bottom half of the
screen is off by one line.  When I hit C-l the bottom half of the lines
move up one line.

Thanks for your help :)
