    Thanks: This precise case is cleaned in Ncurses-5.5-20060408.
However there remains a little related dust under the carpet: Garbage is
appended to an entry which uses another one, when the later has already
been used before, and the using ones declare custom caps.

    Example test2.src attached, defining 3 entries:

 - test1 is the sole building block
 - test2 uses test1 and adds an AX extended cap
 - test3 uses test1 and adds a BY extended cap

    Compile with "tic -x test2.src", and "less ~/.terminfo/t/test3"
shows an unexpected trace of AX.

Bye!    Alain.
