Bug #2397: xterm window content cleared after man(1) exit

Author: Francois Tigeot
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

Starting with commit 3ac91e86fba7d34199699a87e1ff109aacc8eec4 "ncurses: move USE_GETCAP, update README files", xterm now clears its window when the end of a man page is reached and the man(1) program exits.

The behavior makes it impossible to read a complete man page without piping the output to less(1), which is very annoying.

setting TERM=cons25 in xterm can be used as a workaround but breaks curse-based applications.
