2013 Feb 10: updated the download version dists for Mac/Lin/Win to fix bug with curses addstr call that could cause the game to fail at startup if terminal window is too small; now rather than crash it will gracefully chop off unvisible characters; make sure to enlarge your window if any text appears missing; if you wish to download and install the new version, your licenses will still work
