   First of all, are you running SCO FOXBASE 2.1.0 or 2.1.1?  I know
that they have fixed several screen problems with their latest release but
I'm not sure if your problem is one of them.    If I recall correctly, 
Foxplus left something screwed up after being run once and the only
way to correct it was to logoff.  It has something to do with the attribute
byte.  If you dont have release 2.1.1, I would highly recommend it because
it fixes a lot of bugs that existed with 2.1.0.
