When instead of adding lines to the bottom, new lines are added on top
of and replace existing lines. I prefer the scrollable terminal
behaviour to the teletype behaviour of Emacs when running the

teletype behaviour of Emacs for 'man'. From an error message from
'info', it seems that the Emacs buffer is classified as a 'dumb'
