the last is a good clue - ncurses only codes 16 colors, and wouldn't
be able to cycle through all of the values.  But these items are
from xterm-256color, and fit into the first idea I proposed, that
the number of pairs isn't the square of the number of colors:

        colors#256, pairs#256, 

(perhaps when I'm modifying ncurses.c to work with this, I'll think of
a plausible excuse for why it was working for you before ;-)
