That's most certainly deadly wrong.  POSIX provides sufficient interfaces to
write terminal handling code without special casing individual operating

But if that is too much work, it shouldn't be too difficult to work out a
patch in line, based on existing cases for linux and bsd.

Did you report it upstream or Debian BTS (or both?).  Please send turtle-add
requests to jbailey@nisa.net.  He is following the lists closely, but it
wouldn't hurt to send him an individual message with a meaningful subject,
so he doesn't miss it accidently.
