Subject: [gentoo-user] Linux: "make menuconf" creates a hardly useable interface

1 Hi,
3 when calling "make menuconf" on a linux kernel source after
4 a short period of time a ncurses-like interface pop up. But
5 since some interations of the linux kernel this interface
6 has become a mess: Line contents is offsetted all over the place.
8 I searched gentoos bugzila but with "menuconfig" included in
9 the search terms beside others I get way too much hits.
11 Is there a way known to fix that?
