Yes, please do (I'm also the maintainer of luaposix upstream).

Well, I'm not sure what evidence you would need.  But luaposix builds two C 
modules, posix.so from:


and curses.so from:


And then there is some autoconfigury to detect what system curses library to 
link the curses module against here:


Zile requires a working curses.so from the installed luaposix for all its 
screen handling (actually, until we pulled lcurses into luaposix, I was quite 
tempted to write my own light-weight terminal output handling library for Zile 
for a little while), but does not link against or call the actual nurses 
library directly.

Phew, thought I was going crazy for a moment there! LOL  Well, I'd still quite 
like to find it and fix it, but it doesn't manifest on my Mac development 
machine with -j4 (my usual setting), so it would be a great help if you could 
show me the relevant lines from a terminal capture so I can figure out where 
the race condition is.
