On (all?) conformant/standard C systems, a \r will "just" move
the cursor back to the beginning of the line.

That depends on the stty setting of ocrnl. Generally (but you cannot rely on it), curses sets the terminal output modes to allow it to "just" move. However in the case we're talking about, it's using the user's stty settings.

Anyway, it sounds as if DK's working around a bug in PDCurses. The proper place for that fix would be in stop_curses().
