Description of problem:
In console windows borders are not shown correctly. In some cases the window
content is messed up too. I tried setting $TERM=linux but nothing changed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.9b
Steps to Reproduce:
simply using: dialog --yesno TEST 20 20
does this work in xterm? If yes, please reassign to component ncurses...
Actually it's a combination: Redhat 8.0 UTF-8 locales with the Linux console emulator. I made some workarounds which are in the 20021231 rollup patch for ncurses at ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/5.3 -- however since Redhat doesn't deliver ncurses 5.3, doesn't build a Unicode-capable version of ncurses, someone needs to repair the corresponding RPM's. (The phoebe snapshot still has the ncurses 5.2 20020406 snapshot).
reassigning to ncurses
going to 5.3 in next release should fix this
