In windows 98 getch() stays often and I must press the
key more times to be readed by getch().

I have tried to run my aplication in windows 2000 and
this problem did not caused.

I have not tried to run the application in other
windows versions.

I use Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2 compiler.

    Same problem here!

    v2.5 did work, v2.6 doesn't (in Windows 98)!

    also from me an afirm to this problem.

    With w2k and xp if have had any trouble, but w98 shows the
    problem of leaking keypresses.
    Also there is a strange behavior in the return values of getch():
    some times i get a vlaue +64000.
    First i asumed that's th reason for not matching keypresses in
    my app, but there is even a non determenistic delay in
    reporting a keypress.

    So, is there anybody out there, who has an idea to solve this
    problem (in between i will test w/ 2.5 ;-)

    To commentors: If you use the version that's in CVS now, do
    you still see this problem?

    Hmm... I'm now seeing strange bugs myself under 98 with 2.7
    that I never saw with 2.6.

    OK, never mind; the problem I'm seeing is with
    resize_term(), not related to this bug, AFAICT.

    I'd still like to hear from csh8sf...

    sorry for my delay (have had no time):

    My last change was the switch to PDcurses 2.7 (from 2.6)

    For me it is working perfect. All the Problems i reported
    for W98 are gone.
    Great job - THX
