When invoked with the -C flag to convert terminfo sources to the
termcap format, tic converts "%%" to "%%%". Because both termcap and
terminfo use "%%" as an escape for a single "%", I think this is
incorrect. This happens to the tvi921 terminal definition, for example.
will fix (thanks).
I fixed this (one-liner) in my 20040828 patch.
Nalin, i would appreciate if you could try if the bug is really fixed in new
version, so i can either close the bug or go figuring my way around it...
It's in ncurses 5.5 anyway (perhaps Nalin will respond someday).
Oops, yes, 5.5 appears to be doing the right thing here, thanks!
Leaving open because we haven't got 5.5 in Raw Hide yet.
I will upgrade and test ncurses this week.

Fixed in current release.
Sorry, I am too late.
