poterm and tty

I have been going through the forums and I installed the poterm pro application for my 912. It is great software, and I have a question:

I expected that poterm would provide a tty of the software keyboard and the screen, either full screen or windowed. Just like xterm on Linux.

But, the software keyboard only pops up when you enter a command through the command menu of poterm.

Is this the intended way poterm works, or did I something wrong with the setup ?

On start of poterm, it complains "can't acces tty; job control turned off".

When I execute the command tty, poterm/pb answers "not a tty". Would this explain that the way of inputting characters into poterm/pb ?

Moreover, I thought, when you have a tty on a xterm, you can execute programs like vi or sed. They are available in busybox on the pb. Could there be a way to this approach ?

Hoping to hear from you . .
