sounds like you're running in the console.  Linux console...

basically, if you run with the UTF-8 support, all of the vt100 line-drawing
stuff is ignored.  Redhat 8.0 does this.

ncurses 5.3 + rollup patch through the end of December can be configured to
build libncursesw, which works around this.
