New submission from Larry Hastings:

If I build current trunk on my workstation (Linux 64-bit, Ubuntu 13.10) then run

  % ./python -m test -u all test_curses

I get a traceback.  Here's the interesting part:

      File "/home/larry/src/python/buildtrunk/Lib/test/test_curses.py",
        line 118, in window_funcs

        win2.overlay(win, 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1)

      _curses.error: copywin() returned ERR

Zach: I just saw you had a patch specifically against test_curses.py, can you take a look?
