Here's what I've gathered so far:

  Doesnt' work:

    Fedora 14 ncurses-5.7-8.20100703.fc14
    Fedora 14 ncurses-5.7-9.20100703.fc14
    Gentoo ncurses-5.9


    Gentoo ncurses-5.7-r7
    Older Fedora (exact versions still unknown)

I'm currently download Fedora 13 to see if that works.

Here are some files including the application source and source
trees/patches used by Gentoo:


I'll let you know if I figure out which version of the Fedora
libraries were still working.

Remember, there's no need for you to look into anything of this on my
account -- I've fixed my application and it works fine now.
