Yast2-ncurses broken?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I've tested the following on several machines (From Atom330 up to an e235 IBM Server) under 11.2: The last Update "Yast2-ncurses" destroys the "online Update" and the Software Management" within YaST, if YaST is used on a shell (not on KDE). I'm able to start the tools, they are reading the repositories and then fall back to the YaST main menu without any further comment. Sometimes it's possible to get the menu of the software management - just trying a search for a packet kills the application and it falls back to the main menu. If the "YaST2-ncurses" Update is suppressed, it remains working, as far as i tried up to now. Will this be fixed? I'm running several Gateways without KDE and it is nasty if YaST can't be used. And: How to install a fix or patch without using YaST? Zypper? Sincerely Shardan (Sorry for my english, i'm german) (Distributions)
