I have Redhat Linux 7.1 installed and I access it via Exceed Xterm software.  When I do a man page, the page is display properly and the spacebar will page thru the man doc, but when I get to the end, it says END but it won't exit.  I've tried various keys and end up having to kill the man process.....any thoughts?
