NetBSD unknown 5.0_RC4 NetBSD 5.0_RC4 (GENERIC) #3: Wed Apr 22 11:23:42 CEST

First of all: I am using pkgsrg-current, with nightly updates. 
To compile CenterIM, I am using the default PKG_OPTIONS of the package.

Now to the problem:

CenterIM ignores keypresses, like "enter" when selecting a user from the 
userlist. It also ignores most other configured keys except for "g" (generic 
menu) and "s" (status menu), and the "arrow"-keys. (In those menus, "enter" 
does work, btw...)
At first, I got some garbage on the screen, too, but found out rather quickly 
that I have to add

INCOMPAT_CURSES+=       NetBSD 5.*_* NetBSD-5.*-*

to the Makefile to solve that problem. The Garbage is now gone, but the 
key-problem remains.

I have tried several things, from redefining keys through the config-files, 
running it inside and outside of screen, changing $TERM from xterm to vt100 
etc., with no effect what so ever, the keys are still ignored no matter what I 
Compile CenterIM from pkgsrc-current on NetBSD 5.0 (no matter whether some RC 
or RELEASE), arch i386, and start it with a valid IM-Account, e.g. ICQ.
