I can't find a date in any of the kernel-patches file names but
the script is dated 040228 (I downloaded on Apr 3)
My libncurses5, libncurses5-dev and libncursesw5 are all 5.4-3,
Not sure of date but appears to be Mar 22

The error is a longish harangue from the menuconfig script based on
getting a value of 139 back from lxdialog
