Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to hear you're liking the new features.

The only bug i seem to have run into so far, is when using two tabbed conenctions, you cannot run simultaneous ncurses displays. The second attempt to open and instance of an ncurses based program will give you this error.

Your display is too small to run Menuconfig!
It must be at least 19 lines by 80 columns. (Or some variation, i tried it with 2 other ncurses based programs)
We are having some trouble tracking this one down. We fixed a different geometry problem in the latest alpha that may have fixed this problem as well. Do those of you who see this behavior still see it in the latest alpha?

Also i want to put my vote in for tab cloneing. I saw it mentioned a few times before, but one other vote cant hurt.
Because of all the forum requests, this got bumped up in priority and has been implemented in the latest alpha.

Also, SecureCRT seems to forget your session options (mainly emulation preferences) when it is anything other than the main tab. For example Loading SITE 1 first gives me correct emulation, but closing securecrt and then loading SITE 2 and then SITE 1 in a second tab seems to give me the same emulation for SITE 1 as SITE 2.
The way tabs are implemented, the first tab dictates the geometry and emulation settings. It will probably remain this way for 5.0, but we may need to see if we can make the emulation in tabs more flexible in a future version. Because we don't want the window to change size when you switch tabs, we probably won't be able to support different geometry or font settings in tabs.
