In the curses module documentation < http://docs.python.org/lib/module-
curses.html >, there is a link to a curses-howto, at < 
http://www.python.org/doc/howto/curses/curses.html >. That page doesn't 
exist: it gives an HTTP 404.

I am aware that the last time I reported a documentation error it was 
actually fixed in the unreleased most recent version of the docs. I am 
not sure where that was meant-- I can't find anything but the 2.6 alpha 
docs < http://docs.python.org/dev/ >, where the error is indeed 
corrected (< http://docs.python.org/dev/library/curses.html >, < 
http://docs.python.org/dev/howto/curses.html >). If was what was meant 
(I'd always thought that errors would get corrected right away (in the 
same version), so it doesn't fit with my expectations), then I 
apologize for making a wasteful report. I figured that it would be 
better to risk a bit of time wasted than leave an error until later.

Usually, we don't bother fixing doc problems until the next major release.

Especially with the rollover to the new docs.

When both trunk and stable version have the same base again, I'll
continue backporting doc changes as usual.
