How do I know? I have not written this tgetent :-)

You refer to some file outside of zsh. No idea. I repeat - crash is inside of
tgetent; tgetent itself gets valid parameters. What happens thereafter is
outside of zsh control. O.K., one more possibility - clash between memory
allocation routines used in Zsh and your version of termcap.

What are zsh compile options? Do you compile with --enable-zsh-mem? What is
termcap 1.3 - does it come with SunOS? Try to recompile with standard OS
libraries and see if it helps.
