which works! In fact I should have found it myself, but I didn't have
the energy to search hard enough. I just did a search for "wrap" in
terminfo(5)... Of course I collected the output and put it in my
precmd() in zsh, so that I don't have to type it everytime I enter in
an ncurses application.

I love you guys! :-)

About the erasing problem, the temporary solution for me, again from
Austin, is to use stty erase ^H. I had forgotten about it, it's such a
long time I don't use stty anymore. However, this isn't the real fix,
since in another machine running .99R6 I have no such setting (stty
reports ^? for erase) and things work fine.

All of you said to use delete instead of backspace. However this
doesn't work at all, it produces ESC[3~...
