> Mark, did your initial backtrace look like this:

No;  the segfault was definitely happening in delwin rather than putwin.  But I did see something like your backtrace when I tried to use ncurses from ports (installed in /usr/local) rather than the system ncurses.  This was all on FreeBSD 8.0/amd64, by the way, running in a VM on Parallels.  I got the same results both when working directly within the VM terminal, and when ssh'ing to the VM from an OS X Terminal.

Maybe running this through Valgrind or something similar might show what's going on.  (Though it's not clear from a quick google whether Valgrind works on FreeBSD.)
