commit ca83caf03615a3ea7cbba7a9a19f6c3d63036793

    tint requires more heap space for PDCurses.
    tint was failing with the message "initscr(): Unable to create curscr."
    tint uses the initscr() to enable vga windows, which allocates more
    heap space with PDCurses than with tinycurses. Expanding the heap from
    16KB to 64KB resolves the issue.
