Re: Corrected patch to cygwin.dll + ncurses for termcaps

I compiled and installed cygwin.dll and ncurses with this patch,
but I get: Error opening terminal: w32ansi
when I run any of the test programs.  It accepts a TERM of ansi,
but the screen output is wrong.  Is w32ansi correct, and if so,
why might I be getting this error?  Thanks.
