Problems with key repetition in snapped ascii app

Hi… I am snapping an asccii rogue-like game, like nethack. After a couple of hours I have it working but I have a little problem: When I press a movement key the characters runs for several places. In the make && make install version, a single key is a single movement.

Have any of you observed this behavior before in an ascii snapped app?

My knowledge of ncurses is very poor, so any help is well received.
