Hi,

When I run curses applications (such as htop and Linux's "make
menuconfig") in term and ansi-term the window's width appears to be
detected incorrectly. This causes curses to emit lines that are too long
for the window and thus Emacs spans them over more than one line. This
quickly makes the terminal output unreadable. Note, this is a visual
observation, I haven't looked at the code.

Recipe:

emacs -Q
M-x term
<ret>
htop

Thanks,
Matt
