Are you attempting to run this app through Eclipse? If so, attempt it from a "real" terminal window. It could be that eclipse does not set up the environment correctly such that curses doesn't know how to interact with the shell.
For those who might have come here looking for a solution to the original question, I have found that can be done this way or - more easily - the CDT way.
