I can't think of *anything* that would cause installation of a
curses program to hose your X setup.

IIRC, Red Hat has a menu that allows you to choose from several window
managers. Under fvwm95 it would be hidden under several levels of menus
from the Start button. I don't know where they put it under fvwm, but
clicking all buttons on the root window might reveal something.
