I still it seems like a bug.
So, while debugged, see two crashes cases:
1)After pressed key many times at the same line,
for example "ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd....."
I've got Segmentation fault in inputsr.c in compare_cache function at line: int result = CMP(p->cache_num, q->cache_num)  (line 130)

2)After input relatively long line,
I've got program crash in editbox.c file in function dlg_editbox at line: free(buffer); (line 744)

But why characters are showing up as ^@'s ?

perhaps (that seems to be a response to something off-list).

Before looking inside dialog, I'm looking for something that I
can compile and run, so that I can use valgrind (and compiler)
to show me where to look for the actual problem.

The example still has a typo (the ":" in the declaration for tmp_status
should be a ";"), but fixing and compiling that and running it, I don't see
a problem in valgrind:

> g++-min -g -o foo2 foo2.cpp -I/usr/build/ncurses/foo2.cpp -L/usr/build/ncurses/foo2.cpp -ldialog `ncursesw6dev-config --cflags --libs`
cc1plus: warning: /usr/build/ncurses/foo2.cpp: not a directory
foo2.cpp: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
foo2.cpp:10:38: warning: deprecated conversion from string constant to ‘char*’ [-Wwrite-strings]
                 dlg_items_ip[0].name = "Server:";
foo2.cpp:12:38: warning: deprecated conversion from string constant to ‘char*’ [-Wwrite-strings]
                 dlg_items_ip[0].text = "" ;
foo2.cpp:32:72: warning: operation on ‘status’ may be undefined [-Wsequence-point]
                 status = status=dialog_editbox("Post",input_post,20,30);
foo2.cpp:28:5: warning: variable ‘tmp_status’ set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]
 int tmp_status;

The example shows some problems on the screen which I suppose are due
to problems in the sample code, since the line-drawing characters are
showing up as ^@'s.
