sorry about that, clearly that was not the issue I was trying to show ;)

Exactly. The 'A' should be at the beginning of the field but in a broken ncurses
version it is appended at the end.
I can reproduce the bug on ncurses6 20170715 (debian testing) and ncurses6
20170902 (debian unstable). The unstable version is pretty current, so it is
strange that you cannot see it.

Just to be sure, the nature of the bug is:

Correct: Aal2
Wrong:   val2A

And maybe broken again recently?
