Strange effects with Terminfo DB entry

we have a Terminfo description here, that gives strange results with the
tgetent function. Although we can successfully compile it with tic, the 
tgetent function fails on loading it with return code 0.

If we just ignore the return code, the following functions seem to work
normal. We have not fully tested all capabilities. But we have a working
application with many of them.

As the manual page says, a return code of 0 signals problems on loading
the terminfo entry. Can you direct us on seeking the reason for this? Is
it possible to get an incomplete or incorrect terminfo entry when ignoring 
the tgetent returncode? Shouldn't the result be undefined?

Anyway, we've attached the terminfo entry in question. Please test it. The
problems should be reproducable.

Our Environment is: ncurses 5.2 on Redhat 7.2
