I reported the bug because of it is wanted to fix "for Precise" (not for Quantal).

I found the bug when I tried the Python3 Official HOWTO doc:
It uses newpad function.

But I do not know any packages using curses.newpad() with Python3. There may be reasons:
- python3 is minor than python now
- curses module is minor than other standard modules: os, io, xml
- newpad function is minor than essential functions for using curses: initscr, cbreak

The bug is just raise error at calling the function. the fix changes from not working programs to working well.
So I want the patch will be backport to Precise.
