test_curses is currently causing the test runs to abort on the FreeBSD 6.4 
and 7.2 buildbots.

I can reproduce this on a FreeBSD 7.2 /amd64 machine by doing

./python Lib/test/ -uall test___all__ test_curses

This dumps core, and the traceback points at the call to delwin() in 
PyCursesWindow_Dealloc, but it's far from obvious (to me) what's going 
wrong.  wo->win is not NULL here, and appears to point to a valid WINDOW.  
However, stdscr is NULL!  As far as I can tell, this shouldn't happen.

test_curses by itself doesn't crash, unless I add an 'import readline' or 
'import rlcompleter' to the top of

I expect to have access to the FreeBSD machine for a few more days.  Any 
hints about what to try next would be appreciated.
