I find the ncurses 'tput' bug also quite serious... I was installing a
package while telnetted from another system. The postinstall started a
script that did a 'tput clear'. Unfortunately, the terminal type
inherited from the other system was not a "normal" one, and tput core
dumped, and the script was aborted.
It's a very old bug:
#5600: tput core dumps on unknown TERM
Package: ncurses-bin; Reported by: Guy Maor <firstname.lastname@example.org>;
436 days old.
I might have a look to see if this can be fixed...
