Me too.  I see the problem only in an eterm (in an actual eterm (Emacs
'term' command), with TERM=eterm).

You said before you had reproduced another problem with an eterm, so I
hope you can have one handy soon and see if you can reproduce this

It's an actual Linux console; no emacs involved.  (I thought using the
Ncurses name for the terminal type would be less ambiguous and that it
was implied that I matched my TERM with the actual terminal; sorry for
the confusion).
