No, there isn't a version that's not a TSR. And there probably won't be for
awhile, for the same reasons there won't be a DGTERM 2.0... (No time.)

Do you use the vi (or emacs) editing mode in the shell? Try turning that off
("set +o vi"), and see if it helps. Version 1.0 of DGTERM might not be able
to get DOS access when vi editing mode is turned on. (The new version of
DGTERM is better in this area, but it's been put on hold, since shareware
doesn't pay :-(...)
