How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login via ssh

3. login on another terminal and kill previously opened ssh session

Actual results:

Additional info:
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.

commit: https://pagure.io/newt/c/b8b8a86f22d08216328dffb8d70b3ae67629a905?branch=master

So, update of newt library to at least 0.52.13 or newer is proposed.
