Corrected pthread concurrency issues with ncurses and ncursesw. These
libraries are not pthread safe on linux 2.6.33 and later kernels and
require mutexes for access to any of the screen
refresh() calls or they will corrupt the video display

removed vitriolic messages from the code and comments

this version supports multiple update panels with pthread safe calls
to ncurses libraries. Supports VT100, VT220, XTerm, and Linux
terminals. Dumb terminal and ANSI still have some issues but these
problems are ncurses related. Sample IFCON program included.

This version was tested on a 4 processor Opteron HP Proliant Server
