How does ncurses 6.1 support 256 colors?

Hi fellow Archers,

I've just noticed that MC is broken after ncurses upgrade to 6.1. Specifically, I can't get it working with 256-color schemes.

Case 1: bare bones gnome-terminal

$ TERM=xterm-256color mc
Unable to use 'modarin256' skin with 256 colors support on non-256 colors terminal.
Default skin has been loaded

Case 2: gnome-terminal + tmux

$ TERM=tmux-256color mc
Unknown terminal: tmux-256color
Check the TERM environment variable.
Also make sure that the terminal is defined in the terminfo database.
Alternatively, set the TERMCAP environment variable to the desired
termcap entry.

$ TERM=screen-256color mc
Unknown terminal: screen-256color
Check the TERM environment variable.
Also make sure that the terminal is defined in the terminfo database.
Alternatively, set the TERMCAP environment variable to the desired
termcap entry.

Not to mention that everything works with ncurses-6.0 like a charm.
Does anyone have an idea how to work around the issue?

Moving to [testing] section as ncurses 6.1 is still in [testing].

All the best,
