In ncurses arrow keys stopped working as arrow keys after the upgrade to 10.6.3. They do the same as some letters;
up -> A
down -> B
right -> C
left -> D
All capital.
This effects every ncurses based program...

Seems to be the same issue under the regular (desktop) version of Mac OS X.

This is critical for some of the functionality of my server. Please release a fix asap. Ive tried building it myself, but cant get the linking right when recompiling the programs dependent on ncurses...
