Not reproducible here; ztw.exe displays in roughly .2 seconds.
It can't be screen handling as that is updated (asynchronously) every 20
milliseconds, and is completely independent (and in a different process)
from the ztree console.

Tried that, and it uses the wrong number of rows & columns and destroys
the existing scrollback buffer. (Including wrapping the "about" box
from the right edge to the left edge, missing half of its text.)
Using the real number of rows & columns gets the page displayed right,
though it still destroys the console buffer for that tab.

In every test I've run TCMD is 50-100% faster than TCI. Do you have
anything other than Ztree which runs slower in TCMD?
