The alpha-3 version.    The pom had been updated to 1.0-SNAPSHOT before I 
realized it.    I did change the config params and properties and such so 
it's not quite "stable" enough yet for a 1.0.

That's a side effect of how it works.   Not much I can do about it.   
Basically, a high priority background thread is started that just sits in 
a loop sending a backspace + "*" to the screen.   Thus, that star is just 
the background thread doing it's work.   JDK 1.6 has methods that would 
allow it to work properly, but I don't think we want to require that any 
time soon.

Thanks for testing it.
