Bug reference:      5899
Logged by:          Ross Barrett
Email address:      ross_barrett(at)rapid7(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0.3
Operating system:   Ubuntu 9.10
Description:        Memory corruption when running psql
Details: 

Attempting to run psql complains that termcap db is not present (bug 5807). 
Applying the work around of placing an /etc/termcap file from a Red Hat
system allowed psql to run 1x.  Subsequent runs always yield a memory
error:


psql (9.0.3)
Type "help" for help.
