A term-mode buffer doesn't seem to duplicate with M-x clone-buffer very
well.  For example

    emacs -Q
    M-x term
    top Ret        ;; run the "top" program
    C-c M-x clone-buffer
    => gets multiple inserts of the top output

where I hoped the cloned buffer would have refreshing top output,
instead of appending and growing the buffer.

Nosing around the code it looks like clone-buffer runs up a new
subprocess well enough, but that presumably something in the `term-mode'
setups doesn't come out right.

A line-oriented program like the default /bin/bash that M-x term offers
seems a bit better, though point isn't left at the end of the new
prompt.
