Re: copying files to RSTS sim

The cut and paste is slow because of the way the simulator works.  It
basically polls the terminal every several thousand simulated instructions.
In my modified version of the simulator I increased the path length of the
polling code by quite a bit to handle the multiple simulated KL-11s.  So to
compensate I decreased the rate at which it polls.  This is probably why the
cut and paste is so slow, it probably is faster on the unmodified simulator.
