Debian ncurses can't be picky about /etc/termcap, since it's configured at
compile-time to not even look at the said file. So it must be emacs...

I tried running emacs shell/gdb using the 9.8.whatever termcap file and it
looked just like the usual (meaning that except for tcsh complaining about
an "unknown terminal type, setting to dumb" everything looked fine).

I'll try again with the 9.13.whatever version of termcap (the latest one),
but could someone clue me in on the kinds of problems to look for? What are
the symptoms?
