I have encountered an error in the Python Curses documentation, on this
page: http://docs.python.org/3.3/library/curses.html#curses.newwin

The curses.newwin documentation states that when the function is called
with two arguments they are interpreted as the begin_y and begin_x
attributes of the created window. In fact, the function interprets them as
the window's nlines and ncols attributes (respectively). This error seems
to be present in all versions of the documentation available.
