Sorry, I didn't know, that it is intended.  Brett Lymn wrote few days ago, that NetBSD curses follows the spec mentioned above.  Because of that I even didn't check the manpage--which clearly states that only A_STANDOUD is cleared.  It does not harm to add a attrset(A_NORMAL) in the code which works with ncurses too.  Maybe it is better to withdraw this commit.  Sorry for the work and confusion :(
