as I understand the code, field status is updated not after every keystroke,
but when the forms package is asked to synchronize its internal state with
the screen.  I encountered a similar issue when I was working on demo_forms.c,
and fixed it by forcing a validation (REQ_VALIDATION) on each keystroke.
