It is a ncurses bug.
Get ncurses-1.92d (ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu). It isn't quite perfect,
but it works pretty well on my -current system. And in the future when
you upgrade to a new ncurses version, keep the old working one around for
awhile. It seems like every other ncurses release breaks on NetBSD...
