 The real problem is not the abort string itself, but instead the fact that
 the string contains embedded CR-LF characters, which is stylistically
 unusual for Forth strings.  Those embedded cursor motions bypass the
 mechanisms that work out screen placement.

 I might not be fixing this anytime soon, as I don't really know an easy

 You can switch to old mode by typing 'v' (toggle "visual" mode).  If you
 type 'h', the long-form help screen documents that character, as well as
 the 'l' character that redisplays the definition.
