The following code works on Python versions prior to 3.3a1:

import curses

def test_screen(screen):
    screen.addch(5,5, curses.ACS_HLINE)
    screen.refresh()

curses.wrapper(test_screen)

On python3.3, the program produces the following traceback:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/tmp/p.py", line 7, in <module>
    curses.wrapper(test_screen)
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.3/lib/python3.3/curses/__init__.py", line 94, in wrapper
    return func(stdscr, *args, **kwds)
  File "/tmp/p.py", line 4, in test_screen
    screen.addch(5,5, curses.ACS_HLINE)
OverflowError: byte doesn't fit in chtype
