I've CC'd this message to the pdcurses list as well.

The ncurses library will do extra processing of the user input when
keypad is set. I disabled this behaviour because ncurses will hold on
to incomplete escape sequences (such as just the ESC key) for up to 1
second before returning them.
Since it seems that the only way to get special characters from pdcurses
is with keypad set, I would prefer something like:

The proper way to change the input timeouts for your application is to
call this function from your application. eg:

I wonder why pdcurses doesn't send LF on enter? That must cause
problems with other curses applications!
