forwarding this report. Seems to be ppc-specific (I actually saw
this once too but always forgot to report it to you). Maybe some
BE/(un)signed char issue?

Package: multitail
Version: 5.0.2-1
Severity: normal


Whenever i try to add a new buffer/windows by typing 'a', i'am first asked
whether or not i want to merge. I answer 'n'. Then multitail asks me the kind
of the window file or command. I answer 'f' for file. Then the display gets
corrupted. It becomes negative, the dialog shows weird chars. multitails is
then frozen. I have to kill it and then reset the terminal.
I'am attaching a screenshot.
