When entering text into a form field after pressing the key the
cursor is left at the end of the field instead of being positioned
after the last character typed.
field: [ ]
^ cursor position
field: [A ] <-- an 'A' is entered
^ cursor position after entering A
Typing another character will cause the next character to appear in
the correct location, though the cursor always ends up located after
the end of the field.
While I didn't even notice this on a vt100 term, it became shockingly
annoying when running it under pc3.
Just create a form with a field and enter a character.
I'm not sure of the exact location in the source but I suspect
you only need call mvcur() to after refreshing the fields.
