You can replace that line with:
        ESCDELAY = esc_delay;

By default, ncurses waits a long time to interpret escape sequences,
which causes problems if you use vi and type faster than a snail, so
this call reduces this delay.

A more portable fix is to simply use the ESCDELAY environment variable
when running dvtm:
        $ ESCDELAY=1 ./dvtm
