I'm having difficulty reading mouse events under NCurses. Instead of receiving KEY_MOUSE from getch(), I'm getting escape codes. For example, this program:

perhaps $TERM isn't set properly (even though gnome-terminal hardcodes
"xterm" rather than "gnome" ;-).  ncurses is looking for "xterm" embedded
in the $TERM name, or kmous matching xterm's string in the corresponding
terminfo description.

I was wondering about that. I also tried it after "export TERM=gnome" and got the same results (and like I mentioned, I tried it in a bona fide XTerm as well).

Is there a way I can check that this is the problem? (And if so, is there a fix?) If it's relevant, I'm running Gentoo Linux 2005.1, and I also get the same problem under Ubuntu Hoary.
