It was a 24x80 screen in each case.  (screenshot attached, with uxterm using
"Large" font).

I downloaded ncmpc-0.11.1.tar.gz on Thursday, compiled it last night.

Not sure if the screen layout was as expected (whether the ASCII string
and the non-ASCII author+title should be on the same line), I looked a
little at a trace, saw that the addstr for the latter was starting on
the beginning of a new line (ok), and saw that the screenshot in the
bug report corresponded with that.

(perhaps it's some detail of the locale - I generally use en_US.UTF-8 for
uxterm, unless there's some special feature).

So I need more information...

right - I don't see (or recall) any post-5.7 fixes in that area; the
last I noticed in NEWS was the one I cited.
