There is a bug in ncurses which hangs whole system, and hard reset is required. See attached file for sample code which causes it. I found it using Linux CentOS 5 and ncurses 5.9. Additionally when I run it on Virtual PC, I found that system started consuming whole CPU after that program was run.

For sure my program needs fix (it should not pass negative value to newwin), but there is also something to fix inside ncurses.
