To provoke a segmentation fault, run the attached, then grab the top or
bottom edge of the window. Move it down or up until it overlaps the box.
Might need to wiggle the edge a little, but it's reliably reproducible.

Expected error, which is what happens when dragging the left or right edge
instead of the top or bottom:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "cursesfault.py", line 12, in <module>
        curses.wrapper(main)
      File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/curses/__init__.py", line 94, in wrapper
        return func(stdscr, *args, **kwds)
      File "cursesfault.py", line 9, in main
        w.addstr(0, 0, box)
    _curses.error: addwstr() returned ERR

Actual error message varies a little. It's either:

    *** Error in `python3': corrupted size vs. prev_size: 0x000055b3055ba820 ***
        Aborted (core dumped)

Or:

    *** Error in `python3': double free or corruption (!prev): 0x000055b61e1ffbb0 ***
        Aborted (core dumped)

Or:

    *** Error in `python': malloc(): memory corruption: 0x0000564907a5a4f0 ***
        Aborted (core dumped)

Possibly relates to issue15581

I am able to confirm the repro, I haven't been able to find the root cause of it yet though. Trying to dig into it.
