ncurses folks,

I seem to have found a limitation with ncurses' pad feature - pads can't be
larger than 32767 lines. At 32768, ncurses fails to allocate the window.
It's not clear why.

Dimensions are stored in a short (16 bits, signed).
While it's possible to compile ncurses with a different type, that
would break compatibility...
