PDCurses might work under cygwin, but I haven't tried it (since, like
slang in that environment it uses direct I/O).

but can you redirect its output to a file?  (it's pretty much a clone of
PDCurses in that environment -- same interfaces).

I haven't seen any problems with the terminfo (but someone pointed me to
some optimization improvements last week - the only visible effect that
I know of is that it would let lynx paint the lower-right corner, which
isn't a big deal for lynx).  Is there a specific problem that I should
look for?
