Hi Michael,

Thx :) It was a quick solution :)

Ok, so it looks like we can probably have a bigger problem with that.
Maybe let's try to determine where this error may be generated. We
have three places to consider: vis, libtermkey and netbsd-curses.


In my opinion, this may be about (missing?) calling to (def_+)
reset_prog_mode() or (def_+) reset_shell_mode()

In the next step, we can ask Marc André Tanner for some help.

btw. netbsd curses support ~510 color pairs :)
