it turns out the tty version ends up calling display-fs() with just a
DAG object, while the GUI version hands it a TDFS. i checked in a fix
yesterday to allow lui-display-fs() to handle either type of object.

as a rule of thumb, i would recommend against work-around patches for
problems that we do not fully understand (yet). i fear readability of
our code base will suffer over time, as it gets harder to identify the
original intention (in contrast to the cheap-and-cheerful patches).
