I had no problems with rxvt until I installed the new ncurses-base package.
This obviously has a different rxvt
terminfo file cause it doesn't display properly. Ncftp is a good test
TERM=rxvt and it's all messed up. TERM=vt100 it's fine.

Install the old ncurses-base package and it's fine
with TERM=rxvt.
