I don't see this problem on the console with top.
Comment 2 Samuel Flory 2002-07-09 12:59:48 EDT
  It gets even more interesting.  On tty1 it's fine.  On tty2-6 it's corrupted.
 This also happens with ntsysv, and netconfig.  I'd thought it wasn't an ncurses
issue as they worked on tty1.

A 'fix' is in kbd-1.06-19 and later.
