I realized, that in its current state the MiniTerminal is not really 
helpful while trying to get attaching gdb to a crashed app working 
properly. The main problem is that I have a good deal of debug output that 
goes into the terminal so that earlier output is lost due to missing 
scrolling support (or is there a way to scroll and I missed it?). Also not 
so nice, but probably bearable is that the general text output speed 
(especially when scrolling) is really slow (I use qemu, so things are 
generally a bit slower).

So, what is the state of the real Terminal? Is it already working? Who 
feels responsible for it? Which is the right one anyway -- there seem to be 
two implementations? What does a broken zip file in repository 

What is the state of app server scrolling support in general? IIRC the last 
time I had a look at Playground, something was still broken.

Unless there are better options I would add scrolling support to 
MiniTerminal, if necessary even hacking a bit to circumvent app server 
scrolling support.

Any opinions?

CU, Ingo
