I've noted two minor problems on the alpha port.

One is that the top command does not compute cpu time
properly on the alpha. You can't sort by cpu usage.
It works fine on the intel box though. 

A similar problem is with the systat vmstat command, and 
probably all the systat pages. When you do a :pigs and then
do a :vmstat you lose part of the static page data. It looks
like the curses library may not be going to the last line of
the page after writing out the changing data. On the intel
port the : puts you on the last line where you can type the
command and not lose what you are typing when the screen
updates. This happens on the console, and via rlogin from
another machine, so it isn't the terminal emulation.
