We are succesfully using tn3270 in our production Debian boxes to access
our corporate mainframe. I also got the sources from the Internet (sunsite
I think it was) and when I first tried to run it the screen was screwed
as well.

Installing the package termcap-compat solves the problem. I think it is
because Debian does not use termcap for terminal control, it uses
ncurses; and tn3270 seems to use termcap.

Good luck.
