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 <maor@ece.utexas.edu>;
      436 days old. 

I might have a look to see if this can be fixed...
