The manual says about LISTMAX:
If the value is negative, the list will be shown if it spans at most
as many lines as given by the absolute value.
Ie if I set it to -30, it should show me lists up to 30 lines long
without prompting, and prompt for 31 lines and above.
But by experiment and by inspection:
(complistmax < 0 && listdat.nlines <= -complistmax)
it appears that when LISTMAX is negative, it shows the list so long as
it is *longer* than the absolute value.
That (hiding small lists and showing big ones) doesn't seem like a
useful behaviour? If it is intentional, then it is not consistent with
