I thank you, kind sir. I am aware that my expensive and not-very-old MX3850USB Cherry keyboard is not well-behaved; I shall return to my old $12 keyboard.

However, I still question why the display kept returning to the xdvi window after I closed the window and had started no other instance of xdvi. Could the reason be that I started xdvi in the background, using & at the end of the command line?
