Thanks for bearing with me, I kept the archive name the same in order to
be consistent with the other nightlies. Yes, you got the right package,
and that package was compiled against ncurses 5.9. Since you're still
experiencing the problem (and I cannot reproduce it on my x86_64 machine
with ncurses 5.9), I believe this is a problem with Arch's ncurses.

Do you have access to another distro? Or can you spin up one in a VM and
see if you experience the same problem? We could confirm this for sure if
you are able to.
