I am unable to duplicate it on Mac OS X or Linux, using Terminal, aterm
(0.4.2) and xterm.  The OS X version links against ncurses 5.4; the
Linux version uses only the termcap library.  (Though I have to say that
the color change makes the display almost unusable.)

This is at least the second cygwin-only display problem, both (if I
recall correctly) with that version of ncurses.  I don't use cygwin,
and have no plans to install it, so I will need the assistance of
cygwin developers to track these down.
