	Is there any way to get around the length of display time for a message, or are longer messages forever doomed to take proportionally quite longer times?   When I''m finished reading message X and proceed to delete it, message X+1 is automatically displayed (in general, a very nice feature).  However, if in the heading of X+1 I see it''s just junk mail that''s 200K chars long which I definitely want to skip, I cannot do so, and am forced to *wait* until the displaying of X+1 is finished.  (Unless I ↑E out or something).'
	Laurel didn''t seem to have the waiting problem.   Are the (system) printing/displaying times that different?   Did it only attempt to display that portion of the message that would actually appear on the screen?'
[bvm -- yes, tedit has to see the end of the message before it can display any of it]'
