Proposed fix

Description of problem:
The newwin(0,0,0,0) doesn't work, but it should according to man page:
> A new full-screen window is created by calling newwin(0,0,0,0)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install powertop
2. powertop
Actual results:
There is no tab-bar.

Expected results:
There should be tab-bar.

Additional info:
Apparently this is a regression because the code for auto-detection of window size is still there, but by-passed.

fixes for the Ada95 binding.
