On Solaris 10 using system libcurses, curses fails to import:

hemlock% python3.1
Python 3.1.3 (r313:86834, Dec  1 2010, 19:51:26) 
[GCC 4.5.1] on sunos5

>>> import curses

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

I have attached a fix and a regression test.

The code was fixed in default in r73781.  The patch for test_curses was never applied unless by a different name.

For some reason, rev73781 above links to rev55058:fb542ed91e7f, whereas the actual patch is bff927c8b410.

I think testing the replacement is reasonable, but should be call something like 'test_haskey_backup' and it should test that the backup worked, that curses.haskey exists and is the function in curses.haskey. It probably could go in default only.

Here is what I meant, but I cannot test on Windows.  Mark, do you have *nix currently?

Sorry, Windows 8.1 only.

Is this bug still valid or we can just close it?
