Dear FreeBSD, GNU ncurses, and GNU screen folks,
I wrote earlier that the 10 KB per call memory leak in tgetent seems
to be fixed in ncurses version 5.5. That's still true, however I
have since learned that the leak is only fixed if tgetent is called
with the same terminal name each time. If the terminal name changes,
for example alternating tgetent calls for "vt100" and "sun", it
leaks memory, again about 10 KB per call.
ok - something for next week (I did some fixes for the small leaks today).
