This sets the WINDOW size to the physical screen size, which is not

various combinations of setupterm and newwin, but I couldn't quite
get it to work.  Is there a "curses" way to do this or am I stuck
using termcap?

Generally curses deals with full-screen stuff (in part because some terminals used to behave radically different in full-screen vs command-line). It does implement a function "filter()", which tells
ncurses to limit itself to a single line.  There's an example in the
ncurses sources (test/filter.c) which demonstrates this.
