As you may already know, Richard Hirst already noted and fixed
this problem for the woody boot-floppies.  And you can work around
it by running a shell, setting the TERM to ansi or linux, and
running cfdisk manually.

These appear to exist in proposed-updates, so they will probably
be included if another potato point-release is made.

Speaking of which, is another such release planned?  Or are the
potato boot-floppies dead?  If they aren't, should we backport the
vt102 fix?
