The reason seems to be this commit:

     Fix unlikely core dump in init_tty, and simplify terminfo case.

     * term.c (init_tty) [TERMINFO]: Fix check for buffer overrun.
     The old version incorrectly dumped core if malloc returned a
     buffer containing only non-NUL bytes.
     (init_tty): Do not allocate or free termcap buffers; the
     struct does that for us now.
     * termchar.h (TERMCAP_BUFFER_SIZE) [!TERMINFO]: New constant.
     (struct tty_display_info): Define members termcap_term_buffer and
     termcap_strings_buffer only if !TERMINFO, since terminfo doesn't
     use them.  Allocate them directly in struct rather than indirectly
     via a pointer, to simplify init_tty.

Paul, could you take a look, please?
