It seems the problem has been already fixed in newer versions of newt library, at least it's not reproduced on RHEL7 with newt 0.52.15.
check this issue: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=912774
So, update of newt library to at least 0.52.13 or newer is proposed.
This bug should be fixed in RHEL6.9.
