It seems to me that the call to fgets() blocks, that is, when it's
reading for example from a fifo, and data is coming in over that fifo,
it will ignore any events until it encounters a newline (the statusbar
isn't updated until it does, and it doesn't respond to keypresses and
I'm not sure if that is what we want, but if it is, than I think it
should at least be explicitly documented somewhere (probably both in
the README and in the BUGS section of the manpage).

Greetings, Sander.
