when i enter TERM=scoansi im logged out!?! (logged on as root)
amd thunderbird 1000Mhz
Rh linux 7.1
also tested on ibm gl300 same result....
Verified... Ncurses falls over FZ\E[^ for some reason. debugging.
It would appear that the caret needs a backslash in front of it, because caret
ordinarily means control-something, based on the next character, such as "^a"
for control-A. But nothing follows it.
So an immediate fix would be to patch the termcap file to "FZ=\E[\^".
A further fix would be to fix the ncurses routine so it wouldn't blow up on
Workaround added in termcap-11.0.1-10
