halfdelay() in the curses library has a timeout value in
tenths of seconds that does not seem to be honoured.
pkgsrc/x11/xrestop uses it and it doesn't refresh the
screen with new info but waits for input instead.
#include <curses.h>
#include <stdio.h>

        int     c;


        c = wgetch(stdscr);
        fprintf(stderr,"c = %d\n",c);

This should quit after 2 seconds and print c = -1.
No idea yet.
