>Description:
When you have a form, ncurses will set the cursor automatically to the selected field, no matter what window you last refreshed.

When you have a form in nbcurses, it will set the cursor only to this field when you refresh the subwindow it is in last.

Is this a bug or just an intended difference between nbcurses and ncurses?
>How-To-Repeat:
Compile this piece of code with -lform, run it on a ncurses and a nbcurses machine. See how the cursor position is always somewhere. Then, recompile it with the one comment commented out, and see how the cursor position is on the field.
