Didn't we try in the past to exclude column 80? I thought that it gave a

I'm not sure: I seem to recall someone commenting that there was a problem with PDCurses, but am not sure how far back to dredge my email to look for the comment.

I was also testing with PDCurses 2.5, no wide characters (since it doesn't support those anyway). The problem was easy to reproduce - on win32 with PDCurses 2.5 (I seem to have 2.6 on Linux, but hadn't thought to compare based on the versions).
