Unfortunately there's no newer upstream release and this bug is present
in the ncurses 5.9 version in Fedora 20 as well.  From what I gather from the
surrounding code, I *assume* something like this could fix it

            case 'i':
                y = npop();
                x = npop();
                if (p_is_s[0] == 0)
                if (p_is_s[1] == 0)

I'm not sure the relation between x, y, and the p_is_s indices is
correct, though.
