I tested this. And I see the same thing. I normally would not notice, because I prefer “fdisk”. Your post prompted me to check.

I think there was a recent change to “ncurses”, and perhaps that’s related. In any case, I suggest you file a bug report.

Latest libncurses6 resolved the issue! Thanks for the pointer.
