The XSI Curses standard prototypes \fBtparm\fR with a fixed number of parameters,
rather than a variable argument list.
+
+XSI notes that after calling \fBmvcur\fR, the curses state may not match the
+actual terminal state, and that an application should touch and refresh
+the window before resuming normal curses calls.
+Both ncurses and System V Release 4 curses implement \fBmvcur\fR using
+the SCREEN data allocated in either \fBinitscr\fR or \fBnewterm\fR.
+So though it is documented as a terminfo function,
+\fBmvcur\fR is really a curses function which is not well specified.
