I am  curious  as to what  your  env.  var.  TERM  was set ?  Mine is set to
`xterm'.  can I have your  termcap if possible ?  The home page for  ncurses
(Your home page I'd suppose, Thomas) states the following.

Bonk!!!,  The entry for xterm  doesn't  have any of  these.  As a matter  of
fact, I couldn't find any entry except `color_xterm' concerning xterms which
had the  color  capability.  And  when I ran  with my TERM  set it to it, my
terminal conked.  :-(

The uname entry for my m/c has this following
    HP-UX isabella A.09.05 A 9000/712

I also use machines with different flavours of HP-UX, i.e.  9.03, 9.01 etc.
My xterms (h/w) usually are a console and a color capable NCD terminal.

Any updates ???
