A message shorter than 13 characters (the button width plus the sides) in a Curses::Forms::Dialog message seems to cause the screen to barf with an error of: Curses::Widgets::ButtonSet: Window creation failed, possible geometry problem at line 129 This occurs for me under GNU Screen 4.00.02 on Ubuntu Dapper with CursesForms-1.997. I am including a simple patch to right-pad the message with spaces: CursesForms-1.997/Forms/ 134a135 Show quoted text
> $message .= " " x (sort 0, ($max+3 - length $message))[-1]; # pad message
