hi thomas,

i've built/used 2.8.6dev11 on OSX 10.4.1; i ca do so without failure.

2.8.6dev12 builds/installs (seemingly) without error.

however on launch (e.g., lynx, the term window shows a full screen of alternating lines & periods (dots), blinking on & off on a blue background ...

i DO get asked , w.g., whether i want to accept a cookie ... but when I type "y"(return), the app crashes with the follwing dump (below) ...

a stack overflow.  The likely cause is a problem (I'm not sure what) with
the new chunk of code in src/LYCurses.c at line 1753
(the #ifdef USE_CURSES_PADS).  Looking at it right now, I suspect I see
the problem (but it's been a long day). Try changing the "#ifdef USE_CURSES_PADS" line to "#if 0", and that should make the stack overflow
go away - perhaps the blinking also (I'd like to know the latter).

I've been using that chunk for a couple of months - thought it was ok...
