Ancient Domains of Mystery with Speakup

Since this issue seems to have a cause we can put a finger on, I wonder
how easy it would be to fix? (I'm not familiar enough with how Speakup and
Ncurses work to try myself, but it seems a needless frustration to have to
grapple with. After all, the spaces are technically still there.)
Thanks much for the help,
