not sure which vwear patch you're using, but I imagine that there's a line
in vwear_obj() that looks something like:

        sprintf(buf, "%3d. [%5d] %s\r\n", ++found,

within a for loop.  You want to change it to :

        sprintf(buf + strlen(buf), "%3d. [%5d] %s\r\n", ++found,

and make sure that the page_string() call is not inside the loop, but
called at the end of the function.  What's happening is that you are
calling page_string() every time the loop goes around, which is useless
because page_string() only pages if there are more than 24 lines.
