  Dunno, since I can't reproduce it.  But there's been a couple of reissues of
ncurses updates recently owing to bugs connected to the exported apis, and
while you've got libncurses-5.7-2, I just did an update and got 5.7-3, so I
think there's maybe a bugfix version in the process of propagating to the
mirrors and not yet announced.  Try upgrading again!
