[fpc-devel] Linux Binary - Socket Output affected by SystemCtl, HELP!

So far in testing, looks like setting $TERM to xterm-256color resolved my
issue. (not 100% sure if it was specifically that setting, but, after 20+
hours for a couple days in a row, it started working with that being
defined in the .sh idea (thanks!)).

path typo was just my exhaustion... it is set to /tmp/test.txt ...

per user pid, I am old school (risk taker), I shell in as root, and
code/run as root. Have since 1997 when I started running Linux as my main
server line...so not a permissions issue. ;-) off to bed...

Thanks everyone for your input and ideas where/what to try! Monday should
be a good day :-)
