in less/man for instance, or the whole display of emacs).
Or nano, works like a charm also if resized after opening 0=)
And as a general matter, I doubt than *any* application that tries to
display text at specific location on the screen would work on the
console. The problem is that if the application display something below
the screen, the console scrolls. And if the console scrolls, the origin
(coordinate 0,0) moves.
