Do you mean that when typing a command the output of the command is
overwriting part of the previous output added with TCmdBox.Write or
TCmdBox.WriteStream? As long as data written with TCmdBox.Write or
TCmdBox.WriteStream is terminated by a linefeed (TCmdBox.Writeln('') or a
#10 as last character) that doesn't happen.
