Works fine for me with all test packages upgraded to the same version and either 
shell restarted or DLLs rebased by setup.

Please check that libncursesw10 has also been upgraded to the same version 
6.3-1.20220416 e.g.

	$ grep ncurses /etc/setup/installed.db
	libncursesw10 libncursesw10-6.3-1.20220416.tar.bz2 0
	ncurses-demo ncurses-demo-6.3-1.20220416.tar.bz2 1

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis			Calgary, Alberta, Canada
