 The file that it is all about:

$ ls -l /bin/ncurses-test-dll/ncurses.exe
... 74752 Mar  9 22:00 /bin/ncurses-test-dll/ncurses.exe*

$ md5sum /bin/ncurses-test-dll/ncurses.exe
25bffd324f64e34364ef0c47f275a538 */bin/ncurses-test-dll/ncurses.exe

$ strings /bin/ncurses-test-dll/ncurses.exe
< output indicates some kind of TEST software for ncurses(?) >

 Can somebody verify the md5sum above?  $ md5sum -b <filename>
 Anobody else get a virus warning on it?
