Function keys don't work in sushi on a wscons console on i386, or in an
When I press any function key in sushi, it quits (in the examples below,
F1 == help...)
On console (TERM exported):
TERM=vt100, wsvt25, wsvt25m: screen not cleared, exit.
TERM=wscons: core dump (doesn't exist, I know -- shouldn't core dump, anyway)
In xterm:
TERM=xterm: works
In wterm:
TERM=xterm: exits, screen cleared.
TERM=rxvt: works, but the borders are missing.

So the only way to use sushi seems to have X already running, and starting
it in an (x|w)term. That's not good.
See above.
I'm not sure, any combination of the following:
1) Fix libcurses/libmenu
2) Fix termcap entries
3) Fix sushi (for the segfault with unknown TERM at least)
This should definitely be fixed before 1.6.
