Yes. It seems that something is going wrong during the compilation. ncursesw
should be default since 2008 (see below).

Surprisingly, other utilities are linked with ncurses as well, but not affected
by the mangling (e. g. lsblk uses the same characters as well, and they are
displayed correctly). (Maybe just the code for ncurses is no more well tested.)

Re-linking everything against ncursesw sounds like a correct solution. Fixing a
bug in ncurses code could be solution as well.
