More fun.....

if you get into a state where you're sending bad chars to the
Dectalk, here are the things you need to do to clean things up:

0)       Unplug the cable from the dectalk.
1)       Power cycle the Dectalk  until it's sane again.
2)       Kkill any tcl processes that might still be waiting to
send nasty chars.
3)    Ppppplug in  the cable back  into the Dectalk
4) Power cycle, and hit C-e d R to reset stae.
