I saw an earlier message from Po Petz about a similar problem with ncurses
line drawing characters being mangled when displayed in a screen session on a
gnome term. In my case, it is being displayed in a Cygwin bash window, and
the screen version in use is 4.00.01. The symptoms appear to be VERY similar,
though. Does anybody know what could be causing this?
