Re: More ncurses...

There is somehow a glitch we have to solve in the pre/post-inst/rm 
scripts for ncurses and potentially for readline.
My bash is now (and should be in the future, maybe even with shared 

root@ernie:tty1:/lib# ldd /bin/bash
        libncurses.so.3.0 => /lib/libncurses.so.3.0
        libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5.2.18

and don't like to be invoked without libncurses.so.3.0 handy.  Is it
really ok to move libncurses.so.3.0 to libncurses.so.3.0.new in pre
--- why is this TRT?  Upgrading libc
  5.2.16-1 -> 5.2.16-2 -> 5.2.16-3 -> 5.2.18-0
seems to work, but ncurses
  3.0-1.9.8a-2 -> 3.0-1.9.8a-3 -> 3.0-1.9.8a-3
left me with /lib/libncurses.3.0.new but without /lib/libncurses.3.0.

This has to be avoided at all costs!
