konsole cutting off half the screen with any program that uses ncurses

I'm having a problem where konsole will not use the bottom half of the
terminal window when any program with an ncurses UI is being run within
This is best explained with a screenshot:

The applications I've tried so far which show the problem are vim, less,
ncftp, GNU screen and links.

The distro is Opensuse 11.4 with KDE 4.6.0 and all updates applied from
the opensuse update repo. The machine is a Virtualbox VM.

Can anyone here help with this?
