I'm using readline and ncurses on a huge program I write for a long time (http://www.rpl2.net). Yesterday, I have upgraded ncurses from last 5.9 patch to 6.0. I have seen some trouble with readline. For example, backpspace doesn't work anymore :

RPL/2> azerty      1234

1: 1234

All backspaces are printed as regular space even if 'azerty' string is delete. Arrow keys doesn't work anymore as expected. If I link the same program against ncurses 5.9, it runs like a charm.

I don't understand interaction between ncurses and readline. My program is statically linked against readline _and_ ncurses.

        Best regards,
