The number of times I have heard “I couldn’t run {nethack, rogue, Moria} so I tweaked the termcap / terminfo for the terminal”… I had a similar issue with a WY-180 fixed by the local termcap wizard (not me, I abandoned all hope quite rapidly).

Definitely agree that trying “close” terminals is a viable route.
