$ ldd $(/usr/bin/python3.1 -c 'import readline; print(readline.__file__)')|grep curses
        libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb7537000)
$ ldd /lib/libreadline.so.6|grep curses
        libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0xb76a6000)

Ok, I should maybe open a *Debian* bug to ask to link readline to ncursesw (and another to ensure that Python3 is also liked to ncursesw).
