Description of problem:
Text-Mode anaconda displays distorted dialog-boxes, often shifting content by 1
column whenever a region gets repainted.  Not sure if it's Anaconda, Dialogs, or
Ncurses related.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use "linux text" to start the installation process
Actual results:

Expected results:
