This time I think the bug is in Solaris curses.
The call of wbkgd() on the smaller windows is not successfully applying
the A_NORMAL attribute to windows whose attribute is A_REVERSE in the
parent window. Even if I call touchwin() this still happens. It is as
though touchwin() is taking care of changes in characters but not changes
in attributes. Is there a way I can submit a bug report to the
Solaris team. BTW is the Solaris version of curses the same as the AIX
version? I ask because AIX 1 4 000002919000 produces the same results
as Solaris Curses. In any case it seems plausible that they be similar
and that the bug stayed in both releases.
