I made a pretty large application which uses curses.

The trouble is that it can be tough to debug, since all the screen
output is going through curses.

What i ended up doing is creating a log function which i can
call with various strings and variables and which writes its
output to a file... then on another terminal I can just tail
that file to see what is going on.

So what i would do is create such a function, then log the
value of self.k in that loop so you can see exactly what
is going on.
