Users running sftpg3 via the terminal may notice the following warning message:

Need basic cursor movement capability, using vt100

This is was a known issue in SSH Tectia implementation as a result of the relationship with the termcap, ncurses, xcurses and terminfo libraries. SSH Tectia sftpg3 uses terminal capabilities for cursor movement, and because of this, it must know the terminal type with the above libraries.

If this compilation-time-defined library cannot be found or the terminal type is unsupported, we revert to built-in vt100 support and give the warning message.

Fixed in version 6.0.12 onwards.
