On every endwin(), per the spec, PDCurses moves the cursor to the first column
of the last row. However, PDCurses doesn't operate at the stdio level, so the
interaction of stdio calls (printf) with curses calls may not be as expected
(which is why I tell people to avoid mixing them).

I can't say this isn't a bug in PDCurses, because I haven't tested it; but it
doesn't really sound like it.
