I'm unable to reproduce. Also, when I install screen from pkgsrc,
it is not linked with ncurses. Further, screen is installed without
read permissions, so ldd without becoming root is not possible.

equinoxe:~# ldd /usr/pkg/bin/screen
         -lcurses.7 => /usr/lib/
         -lterminfo.1 => /usr/lib/
         -lc.12 => /usr/lib/
         -lutil.7 => /usr/lib/
         -lcrypt.1 => /usr/lib/

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  12 Dec 18 14:06 /usr/pkg/bin/screen -> screen-4.7.0
-r-s--x--x  1 root  wheel  419472 Dec 18 14:06 /usr/pkg/bin/screen-4.7.0

I don't have current running either.

Does the problem still exist for you with the latest pkgsrc?
Can you confirm that /usr/local/bin/screen is from pkgsrc?
Would it be possible for you to try on NetBSD 8.1?

If the problem still exists, please also provide the output
printenv TERM
printenv TERMCAP

I was trying with TERM=screen.xterm-256color

+ Kimmo

I still have the problem, but only with bash -- at least things like
tset, reset, more, jove, vi, etc. no longer cause this error.

: eddie; echo $TERM
: eddie; printenv TERM
: eddie; printenv TERMCAP
: eddie;

Even when I would set TERM=screen.xterm-256color, I had the issue with
bash, but because tset & co. & other curses things don't have this issue
anymore in screen, I don't see a reason to keep it open.  Thank you for
getting back to me -- much appreciated! Not really possible for me to revert to 8.1 to try as I have already updated to 9.99.13.
