See the latest st. In mc it worked, but dialog(1) got me where the bug
was. The sequence to delete n characters needs BCE activated too.

Dialog is now working, except that dialog has some bugs on its own.
Like when you do resizing in st it does resize but the content of the
dialog is not redrawn and the shadow of the last line is drawn in
the wrong way, while it works on the first try. In xterm dialog simply
quits and in urxvt the white lines are drawn in grey.

Thanks for the input. Please report back if mc and dialog work for you
