Stefan, I was emailing with Rong-En Fan, a FreeBSD committer, about this issue and he asked:

"Basically, this is caused by

  a) our is linked against (via -ltermcap which is the same lib)
  b) wide-character enabled ncurses,, is also loaded in the same process

To solve that, we need to have a separate, do I understand the issue correctly?"

He also mentioned that "[a]nother more aggressive way is to make only ncursesw installed into the system which requires a recompilation of all ports that use ncurses (ncurses and ncursesw are source compatible, but in most cases they are binary compatible as long as application don't assume size of ncurses structures)."

Which I fully support, it's something that I did on DragonFly BSD a long time ago already (for all I can remember).

Your opinion?
