Older SVr4 man pages warn that the return value of \fBcurs_set\fR "is currently
incorrect". This implementation gets it right, but it may be unwise to count

+Both ncurses and SVr4 will call \fBcurs_set\fR in \fBendwin\fR

The functions \fBsetsyx\fR and \fBgetsyx\fR are not described in the XSI
Curses standard, Issue 4. All other functions are as described in XSI Curses.
