Thanks again for your quickly answer, Thomas.

I am using the ncurses version "ncurses-5.7+20081213", over an IBM-AIX machine, using a Reflection Terminal to connect to the Host and work in it.

Could it be a problem with the terminal emulation or the operating system instead of a library bug? (I don't think so, because it works in the case I told, but everything's possible in this amazing world...)

Best regards,

LRU #493328

I made some minor fixes, and ran both here without seeing a problem.
(attaching the updated examples).

I made some fixes to field_buffer a while back - what version of ncurses
are you using?  I tested with
    ncurses 5.7.20081213
    ncurses 5.9.20111126
