It also has a habit (curses related) that sometimes it changes your stty
settings and doesn't change them back, leaving you with a mess rquireing
stty sane to fix.  This is a bug against the package, but nobody has any
idea what causes it.

It may have gone away with ncurses 4.  If so, I think I need to have a
look at a couple other programs that had the problem.  =>
