I'm getting a segmentation fault when I try to use tput.  The program runs 
successfully if you just ask it for a version number, or if asked for a non-
existent capability, but gets a seg fault when asked about a real capability.

$ tput sgr0
Segmentation fault (core dumped)                <---- this is wrong
$ tput -V
ncurses 5.7.20091024                            <---- OK, latest version
$ tput garbage
tput: unknown terminfo capability 'garbage'     <---- OK, this is correct
$ type tput
tput is hashed (/bin/tput)

The seg fault didn't happen with the previous version.  Is there anything else 
I should try to debug this?  Would you like cygcheck output?
