that patch is not a very good solution at all the the problem.
The problem is that termcap's strings may require arguments,
and tput doesn't do anything about them.

the solution is to fix tput to understand arguments.

If you come up with such a fix, and it's *clean*, i'll put it
into tput.  For now, i'm going to file a bug report for the problem.
