Description

When debugging something else, I've noticed that on Illumos, and as best as I can tell only Illumos, the "dumb" terminal appears to have a bel

see:

tput -Tdumb bel | cat -v

This seems wrong (and different from every other system I can find).

I may have this dead wrong, but want to leave it until I'm sure.

I've checked other OSes, and only FreeBSD doesn't have bel defined for the 'dumb' terminal type, Solaris 11 and Debian/GNU Linux do have it defined. If you are really concerned about it, we could ask on ncurses mailing lists (as current terminfo/termcap sources come from it).

Let's close it and if it's really an issue, let's report it upstream and then just sync termcap/terminfo updates from there.
