yes - I have seen this with some older versions of ncurses, and in a few
special cases with current ncurses.
For example, when I visit apple's page, one link line looks like:

with the link beginning on the second Jus. Somehow, the link is offset a
character or 2 or 3 from where it started. No idea why this is happening

The problem is that since 2.8.5, I've been rewriting the support for
