	According to Thomas Dickey, at least the `pk' capability in the 
	iris-ansi termcap entry (and thus also in entries which reference
	it w/out overriding `pk') is incorrect.

	It currently is: "pk=\EP101;%d.y%s\E\", but according to Thomas,
	it should be "pk=\EP101;%d.y%s\E\\".

	See also PR port-sgimips/17619, which documents the issue for the
	cut-down termcap entry used by the sgimips installer.

	Get Thomas to read over your termcap entry 8-)

	Compare the iris-ansi entry to the one in Thomas' latest termcap
	source file at

	It may well be that the `pk' capability is the only incorrect one,
	but I don't have the time to check right now.
