I forgot to mention that you will almost certainly have to use 'dpkg 
--purge --force-depends' on both ncurses-runtime and -developer, since 
the new packages now (correctly) conflict with the above, and some base 
packages depend on ncurses-runtime.

This may break those particular programs, since we have changed the 
search structure for terminfo entries in the new packages.  You can 
correct this by symlinking the entries under /etc/terminfo to 

This will be done automatically in ncurses-term-1.9.8a-3.
