NetBSD dzizs 4.99.3 NetBSD 4.99.3 (build) #0: Tue Oct 17 17:43:58 CEST 2006 lkundrak@dzizs:/usr/home/lkundrak/adm/kernel/build i386
When chat/centericq is linked against BSD curses it sometimes (reproducibly) garbles the screen with alphanumeric characters instead of their line-drawing counterparts from the shifted character set.
Launch centericq. Send a message to someone and then go back to the buddy selection.
I worked around the problem with USE_BUILTIN.ncurses=no, not being sure whether that's right.
