Hello Thomas,

Well I couldn't manage to handle this via ncurses, it
doesn't free all the memory up as you say.

Anyway, what I reckon one should do in this sort of
situations is to add suppresion rules to valgrind so
that unfreed memory won't disturb, which I haven't
achieved either so far.

I also forgot to mention a problem I've been having
this last times for compiling ncurses.

At last patch-level, within include/MKhashsize.sh,
line 38, one can see something like this:

TABSIZE=`grep -v '^[ #]' $CAPS | grep -v "^$" | grep
-v "^capalias"| grep -v "\
^infoalias" | wc -l'

and I always have to change it to something like this:

TABSIZE=$(grep -v '^[ #]' $CAPS | grep -v "^$" | grep
-v "^capalias"| grep -v "\
^infoalias" | wc -l)

though as I'm not an expert I'm not sending a patch or
even say you might have to correct it, is just that I
always find problems in that stage of the process,
which IIRC is for building up curses.h.

My system's info is:
