That'll teach me for believing what emacs says. :-)

I use the stv52 terminal type without problems with other
applications (except ncftp; perhaps that should give me a hint).
The termcap entry is the original one from the vconsole
The funny thing is, emacs doesn't complain it didn't find the
termcap entry; it just says it doesn't appear to have the
required functions. Does emacs use terminfo, or termcap? If
something got corrupted, I would more readily suspect my
terminfo entry than the termcap one.
Anyone got a clean, compiled stv52 terminfo entry for me to try
