Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-03 15:07:46 UTC
Verified... Ncurses falls over FZ\E[^ for some reason. debugging.

Comment 2 Bob Rasmussen 2001-06-15 22:20:26 UTC
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 
this situation.

Workaround added in termcap-11.0.1-10
