It's a problem in ncurses, there is a compiler padding in cchar_t structure and
memcmp() on the struct that wasn't memset() before causes the warning.
I do not see this as a bug in ncurses.
Please, can you compile/install *.src below
(all devel versions) and repeat your scenario:
Created attachment 125107 [details]
Created attachment 125108 [details]
Created attachment 125110 [details]
These are the exact versions I already have installed, along with debuginfo's.
What would rebuilding them from source achieve ?

It is fixed in rawhide.
That's interesting, but the patch does not fix the problem that
I'm interested in: ncurses supposedly initializes the cchar_t's
either via static declarations or calloc's. I see a couple of
places where NewChar() and NewChar2() are used on the stack.
Those are probably what was reported.
