Ah, thanks for that piece of information. I installed 
ncurses-base_5.4-4_all.deb (which I had actually downloaded on some 
previous occasion) and was then able to run zile successfully. Thanks! :-)

I'll mention it to the packager.

One item I'm curious about though: is an install of 'libncurses' ever 
useful *without* a corresponding install of `ncurses-base`? I ask this 
because I'd installed 'libncurses' previously to satisfy some other 
package's requirements, but I'm not sure if I had ever exercised it.

Anyway, thanks again for the help.


P.S. I didn't mention vi *once*! ;-D
