Yes, that makes sense/works - wonder what changed recently in my overall
configuration/setup - suppose might have something to do with screen
reader's system wide interference - maybe it was passing a different
effective keystroke through to command line prompt before, or something,
since am 99.9% sure always just used <ret> key to advance one screen at a
time before - who knows, but, main thing is, yes, space bar does what I want
"Roger Wilco wants to welcome you...to the space janitor's closet..."
