I think the immediate workaround is not to use curses keypad() function
(undef HAVE_CURSES_KEYPAD). Nvi version of the function is different
from that of curses.
I think the traditional curses had an exported function "tstp()",
which does suspend and all the troublesome things about it
in place of the userland programmer.
What is the correct way to suspend a process with modern curses?
__stop_signal_handler() does it, but it doesn't seem exported....
